In 2018, the East India Company made a splash with a five-coin series of modern Trade Dollars. These silver bullion coins were struck with designs honoring the popular Silver Trade Dollars issued by world powers for commerce in the Asia-Pacific region in the 18th and 19th centuries.

Starting in 2018, the East India Company’s Trade Dollar bullion series released five designs the revived imagery from historic Silver Trade Dollars. The included releases represented Britain, France, Japan, the United States of America, and China. The last of the Silver Trade Dollars introduced during the height of Trade Dollar usage in the 19th century was the Chinese Trade Dollar with its image of a dragon.
All of the 2021 1 oz Silver Chinese Trade Dollar Coins available here come with a new image of the Chinese dragon. This design stands apart from the previous Chinese Trade Dollar release from East India Company as it offers a different design element. The coins are available in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and come with individual plastic flips. The coins in this series have a One Pound face value, but this is the St. Helena Pound and not the Pound sterling of Britain.
On the obverse of 2021 Silver Chinese Trade Dollars is a depiction of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is featured here in right-profile relief at the age of 89 as she wears the George IV State Diadem on her head. This design was first created in 2015 by Jody Clark and debuted on British coins in 2016. The design is now rolling out across coinage of British territories and Commonwealth Nations.
The reverse side of the 2021 1 oz Silver Chinese Trade Dollar features a new interpretation of the Chinese dragon from the original Chinese Trade Dollar. In this design, the dragon is shown encircling the globe as the outline of the People’s Republic of China is featured on the globe.
