2020 1 oz French Trade Dollar Silver Coin (BU)
Struck in a full ounce of highly pure 99.9% silver, this £1 (one pound) Saint Helena legal-tender coin is a carefully crafted restrike of the original French Trade Dollar. The original French-Indonesian Trade Dollar was first issued in 1885. The iconic design is rich in symbolism that reflects the French attitude towards Indochina in the 1880s. It shows the allegorical figure of Lady Liberty seated on a throne. At her feet rests a bail of wheat to symbolize the bountiful food grown in Southeast Asia. Her left arm rests on an anchor, symbolic of France’s status as a major maritime world power.
The East India Company’s 2020 One-Ounce Silver French Trade Dollar is the fifth and final coin in a five-year series. Other coins include the British, Chinese, Japanese-Indonesian and U.S. Trade Dollars.
