1921B British Trade Dollars

If you want to strike a lottery ticket, one opportunity is to look through your British Trade dollars silver coin collection to see whether you possess such rare date coins like the

  •  1935B ( only 25 pieces known to exist ) ,
  • 1934 & 1935 ( coins bearing such dates were not generally released into circulation)  and
  • the 1921B British Trade Dollars.

In KN Boon’s catalogue, there is supposed to exist only 6 pieces Specimen Known coins for the 1921B BTD coin. Therefore, just imagine how surprised and excited I am, when a fellow collector, Mr Ong who is a very serious collector of the British Trade dollars recently shared with me  that in ebay, there is on a Buy it now/best offer of Rm100,000 price tag for this rare coin:

1921B British Trade dollars silver coin Advertised in Ebay Malaysia for Rm100,000 Buy it now /Best offer. Described by owner as EF condition

My two cent:

  • Looking at the aforesaid pictures, this coin looks like it has been quite heavily circulated with nicks on the edges of the coin and being cleaned before – so the condition is ???? you guess-lah
  • Perhaps, with such high valued and rare coin, it would be worth while to get it slab and authenticated and then auction vide reputable auction bourses otherwise advertising such rare coin in ebay might not be the best avenue to get its targeted audience and price!
