The British Trade Dollar originated in the 19th century following British victories in the First and Second Opium Wars. The British victory enabled the empire to force open Chinese ports to trade and commerce with outside powers. This was the first time in centuries that outsiders had traded goods in China and nations such as Britain, the United States, and even Japan issued silver trade dollars for use in commercial transactions in the Far East.
Britain’s Trade Dollar coin design included the image of Britannia on it during this period of time and included an Oriental Border. The coins were produced primarily by the Royal Mint of England facilities in India and the Far East.
The obverse side of 2020 1 oz Silver British Oriental Border Britannia Coins includes Queen Elizabeth II. This vision of Her Majesty depicts the Queen at the age of 89 and is a right-profile portrait with the Queen wearing the George IV State Diadem Crown. This is the fifth-generation portrait of Her Majesty and was created in 2015 by Jody Clark.
On the reverse of the 2020 1 oz Silver British Oriental Border Britannia Coin is a depiction of Britannia. Designed in 1987 by Philip Nathan, this modern vision of Britannia is a powerful one that showcases the female personification of Britain guarding the nation against all outside threats.
