In 1873, the United States Mint first issued the trade dollar as a way to improve trade relations with China, Japan and elsewhere in the Orient. Before the trade dollar, the Mexican peso had been the primary currency used, but American exporters found it cost-prohibitive to purchase Mexican pesos for use as payment to Chinese suppliers. Since there were large silver coins already in popular use in Asia, it was decided that the U.S. should have a dedicated currency for trade.

Originally called Commercial Dollars, the trade dollar was designed by William Barber, chief engraver at the Philadelphia Mint. It was minted in Philadelphia, Carson City and San Francisco, and small numbers of proofs were made from 1878 through 1885. Trade dollars will often have "chopmarks" on them where Chinese merchants stamped the coins to verify their value and weight. The smallest non-proof mintage was 97,000 in Carson City in 1878. The largest number made was 9,519,000 at the San Francisco Mint in 1877.
