My Rare 19th Century Silver Hong Kong Coin Collection

Hi YouTube! Here’s my collection of nicer, larger silver coins from the British colony of Hong Kong in China. The Chinese lost the island after the Opium war then leased the peninsula for another hundred years in 1897. In 1997, the area was handed back to China with pomp and ceremony. Overnight, the word “Royal” on signage was removed.

    I like the Hong Kong (British Empire) coins! The 1900 Trade Dollar and the 1893 Chopmarked one are beauties!

  2. Tom The English Picker says:

    I’ve started collecting hong kong coins myself. They turn up now and then. Got a nice trade dollar a few months back for £5 GBP

  3. DetroitLove4U says:

    They command a premium as I recall as they sustained a lesser mintage.

    1896 20 cent was really nice. I should collect more Chinese silver

  6. Lar M says:

    Are most of them uncirculated ? I have some Queen Victoria and Edward VII collection but their crowns are somewhat fading.

    Where are those coin shops you visited?

  10. freddy freddy says:

    Hiya, just a question: is that still within the acceptable range if my British trade dollar weighs 26.64 grams? The unc one ought to be about 26.95 grams.

    Beautiful coins! I’ve got a few myself, come check out mine on my channel!
    P.S. I would kill for the 1866 and 1867 dollars.

    An 1889 P Morgan Silver Dollar my parents had in a drawer since around the time I was born more just after I was born like in 1979, They got from a Winchell’s Donut shop as my father veered over into the cashier’s drawer and saw it and just simply asked for it in change. In 1987 I got hold of it and the rest was history! I just enjoy the allure and the history of numismatics. Do you feel that silver and gold are going to ascend in value per world economic ebb and dysfunction?

    All 80% silver

  14. Coinpicker says:

    Hi HT! I paid about $300-$400 each for the HK silver dollars and around $30 for the fifty cent pieces. Mind you, I had bought them probably about 5 years ago or longer. CP

    Great collection!

  16. kawajoc b says:

    i have a George the 7 th Dollar, Nice Coins you have

  17. Eugene Fegelein says:

    Wow! I only have the 1891 20 cents and a 1905 50 cents, even after i moved to Hong Kong on buisness purposes!

  18. DetroitLove4U says:

    I have several Great Britain Trade Dollars in roughly AU grades. Do you have any Trade Dollars minted by the Calcutta Mint??? You seem to be a serious collector. I myself am a Numismatist for some 27 years now since my childhood and I have not hesitated to pursue World Coins. I have countless silver pieces that are no run of the mill. Would you believe that I bought an AU grade 1904 Canadian Quarter for $6 about a little over a year ago???!!!! It books for over a $1000!!!

  19. Reece Scott says:

    I have 3. 50 cent. 7 x 10 cent and 15 x 5 cent Hong Kong coins paid 13 British pounds !
