Shortly after the death of Emperor Xian Feng in 1861, his concubine Cixi assumed control and ruled China as The Empress Dowager. Cixi was able to read, a rare skill at that time, and educated herself on domestic and foreign affairs, creating policies that would modernise China’s culture and economy. Recognising the importance of making international trade as easy as possible she instigated changes in customs, weights and measures that enabled the creation of a standardised ‘Dragon’ Trade Dollar.

Trade Dollars had been used to facilitate international trade since the ‘Spanish Dollars’ of the 15th Century, and the first ‘Dragon’ Trade dollars were struck in 1889 with the coin’s weight in English lettering sitting beneath a traditional Chinese dragon. Now, the Chinese Trade Dollar is reimagined for 2021 by The East India Company, our stunning Proof finish emphasising every detail of a new design that features a mighty dragon encircling the globe.

This limited-edition silver 1oz coin is presented in a luxurious presentation case along with a booklet and numbered certificate of authenticity.

Drawing it’s inspiration from the presence of Angels on Napoleon’s Death medal and his tomb at Les Invalids.

Napoleon Bonaparte was born on the island of Corsica in 1769. He is widely regarded as one of history’s great military minds, building an Empire that stretched across Europe before his defeat at Waterloo in 1815. He was exiled to St Helena, where he remained until his death in 1821.

While Napoleon’s military cunning is undisputable, it is also believed that he carried a symbol of good luck with him, his own personal guardian angel.

The French Angel Coin first appeared in the late 18th Century. Its designer became suspected of revolutionary tendencies and was sentenced to death but somehow escaped the guillotine. Allegedly he bribed his captors with an Angel Coin, and it became known as a lucky charm. 19th Century French Naval Captains would refuse to sail without one in their purse, and even Napoleon was not beyond belief in the lucky Angel Coin. According to folklore he carried one in his pocket throughout his reign, only to fatefully lose it the day before his final defeat at Waterloo.

Truth, the principle of being and acting truthfully. The allegorical personification of Truth is depicted as a glad-winged figure, holding a mirror in her right arm, symbolic of self-truth. Between her stands a child bearing a palm-branch, whom she comforts demonstrating the role of us all to protect the innocent.

Taking its inspiration from the allegorical figure of the virtue of Truth as depicted on the Victoria Memorial situated outside Buckingham Palace, our second design in the series features the words

VINCIT OMNIA VERITAS

Surrounded by a circle with traditional Chinese motifs, a rabbit appears in the center of the face. Only the front part of the animal is revealed as if it came out of a door while advancing in our direction. The ideogram of the rabbit appears on the right of its representation. The year 2023 as well as the inscription "Year of the Rabbit" appear at the top, in the outermost circle.

On the reverse, we find all the animals of the Chinese zodiac distributed on a screen surrounding a traditional temple door. A complete cycle of the Chinese zodiac begins in 2018 and lasts until 2029. Each of these twelve years therefore highlights an animal from this calendar. The face value is visible at the top left and the mention "RF" is located on the door.
