In 1871, dignitaries, statesmen, and scholars from Imperial Japan set out on a three-year journey far and wide to serve as representatives of the Emperor to other nations, kingdoms, and empires around the world. This was done in an effort to expand the Japanese economy.
Known as the Iwakura Mission, this effort eventually resulted in the introduction of a Japanese silver trade dollar. Those coins were introduced in 1874 and produced from 1875 to 1877. The East India Company has already revived this concept once before with a historic interpretation of the coin, and now delivers a modern twist on the Japanese Trade Dollar.
Queen Elizabeth II is depicted in the obverse design of 2023 1 oz Proof Trade Dollar Silver Coins. This portrait of the Queen is the fifth-generation design from the Royal Mint and was created in 2015 by Jody Clark. This design shows the Queen in right-profile relief wearing the George IV State Diadem.
In the reverse design of 2023 Proof Japanese Trade Dollar Silver Coins, you will find a depiction of the mighty Japanese dragon. In this design, the dragon dominates the foreground as one of its front claws clutches a pearl. In the background, the stylized globe is focused on the islands of Japan.
These 2023 1 oz Proof Japanese Trade Dollar Silver Coins are available to you for purchase with individual packaging. The coins are held in capsules and presented inside display boxes. Each coin comes with a storytelling booklet as well.
