2019 Niue 1-oz Silver Chinese Trade Dollar Proof NGC PF70UC
The Coin That Joined East to West
First issued in 1889, Chinese silver trade coins were originally struck only in Kwangtung Province using British equipment. The goal of the coins – created at the request of the indomitable Empress Dowager Cixi – was to allow China to trade more efficiently with the rest of the world. Now, 130 years later, the Chinese Trade Dollar is being honored with a beautiful coin by London’s famous East India Company.
Struck in a full ounce of highly pure 99.9% silver, this $1 Niue legal-tender coin is a carefully crafted restrike of the original Chinese Trade Dollar. It was only natural that a dragon was the theme used for those coins. Symbolic of the emperor, dragons are legendary creatures in Chinese mythology and folklore, with appearances found in an archaeological context as far back as the fifth millennium B.C. Inspired by Japanese and Korean coins, the design of the ferocious curving dragon soon became standard across all provinces of China, not just Kwangtung, and remained on China’s coins until the early decade of the new millennium.
