This is an interesting silver British Trade Dollar coin which were bidded by 8 people and realized USD 133.50 in e-bay auction (excluding shipping cost). At the first glance, it looks extremely attractive- 1895 medal silver proof but in reality on the other side, at the 6 o’clock , it is a 1988 5 oz Trade Dollar Medal silver proof.
Very honestly, I was also very carried away thinking of buying so cheap a proof copy of the British Trade Dollar when just looking at the date 1895 instead of the other side -right to the bottom side of the coin ( at 6 o’clock) the year 1988 and also faulting myself for not properly reading the text of the auction description. ( greed- cheap sale?) When I looked at other e-bay sites with similar auction the similar silver proof is sold for about USD43.00 which I believe for its SILVER bullion price. Anyway, this RESTRIKE copy by private mint is quite a beauty to behold !
