1 oz Copper Round | British Trade Dollar
The 2018 British Trade Dollar 1 oz Copper Round pays tribute to the historic silver British Trade Dollar that was minted exclusively for use in the Far East in 1895. British Trade Dollars were originally produced for British Merchants who needed a way to trade freely in far-east Asia without having to rely on the supply of foreign silver coins.
When it comes to historic coin designs, copper rounds offer collectors and investors many beautiful and affordable options. This British coin with an enchanting eastern feel is exquisitely executed in copper and is a joy to have in hand. So whether you’re looking to add copper bullion rounds to your portfolio or you’re searching for that perfect gift, the meticulous craftsmanship and historic significance of this British Trade Dollar Copper Round is sure to please.
The obverse features a beautiful eastern design surrounded by a Chinese scroll frame. The denomination is displayed in two languages: Chinese and Jawi Malay.
The reverse of this British Trade Dollar Copper Round depicts the same iconic Brittania as the original British Silver Trade Dollar. The helmet-wearing Brittania stands gallantly with her eyes focused on the horizon, holding the British shield in her left hand and a trident in her right. Behind her, a ship loaded with goods strikes out for distant shores under full sail. It is framed in the same Chinese scroll pattern as the obverse, and the round’s weight and fineness encircle the image.
