COIN INFORMATION:

This Silver Pillar Dollar was a mainstay of trading during its time because of its consistency in weight and purity of metal. Other countries used the Pillar Dollar in trade because of this reason.

INTERESTING FACT:

The special chop marks on this coin were used to test the metal for purity. Once assayed and stamped it could be used for trade and guaranteed to be geniune by the marker. These marks show that the coin was assayed somewhere in China.
