Santa Fe Trading Post
Trade Dollars

If you’ve read our Home Page, you know that we view Santa Fe Trading Post™ as the 21st Century version of the trading posts of old, particularly the Hubbell Trading Post established by our hero, Juan Lorenzo Hubbell, in 1878. We even honor his famous Trade Dollars for full face value towards the purchase of merchandise here on our site! But while our offer was made tongue-in-cheek, it got us to thinking. Hubbell’s wasn’t the only trading post that issued trade dollars; in fact, most trading posts issued proprietary trade dollars, often in varying denominations, for customers to use in place of legal tender to buy goods and supplies at their establishments. If it was a good idea in the 19th Century, why not the 21st? Why not continue this popular trading post tradition today? Why not issue our own Santa Fe Trading Post™ Trade Dollars?

Well, here they are!

Fun to collect! -- Fun to give! -- Fun to receive!
Far more fun than gift certificates!
Choose either $1.00 or special $5.00 Trade Dollars!

Santa Fe Trading Post™ $1.00 Trade Dollars

Our $1.00 wooden Trade Dollar is imprinted on both sides, showing its redemption value, place of origin/redemption, and our SFTP web site address. It’s a unique and attractive collector’s item for yourself or to give as a thoughtful memento or completely spendable for $1.00 in trade on any purchase made at Santa Fe Trading Post™ other than additional Trade Dollars, nor can they be redeemed for cash. Available only in sets of 10, 25, 50, or 100 (subject to availability) with free shipping to the same address. (Click on pictures for larger images.) Tell a friend.

 

 

  Price: $10.00 for set of 10, including free s/h to 1 address in the U.S.A.

 

 

  Price: $25.00 for set of 25, including free s/h to 1 address in the U.S.A.

Santa Fe Trading Post™ $5.00 Trade Dollar

Our $5.00 wooden Trade Dollar is imprinted on both sides, showing its redemption value, place of origin/redemption, and our SFTP web site address. It’s a unique and attractive collector’s item for yourself or to give as a thoughtful memento or completely spendable for $5.00 in trade on any purchase made at Santa Fe Trading Post™ other than additional Trade Dollars, nor can Trade Dollars be redeemed for cash. Available only in sets of 5, 10, 25, 50, or 100 (subject to availability) with free shipping to the same address. (Click on pictures for larger images.) Tell a friend.

Wow! This gets even better!

Because these $5.00 Trade Dollars have been especially created as collectible coins, Ol’ Swaphos, the Trader Extraordinaire, has outdone himself for you, coming up with a way for you to spend your $5.00 Trade Dollar and have it, too! When you spend a $5.00 Trade Dollar on any item of merchandise at Santa Fe Trading Post™ by mailing it to us for redemption, Ol’ Swaphos will mark it “Redeemed” and mail it back to you! So you get the item you purchased PLUS the collectable $5.00 Trade Dollar! (Try to get the Federal Reserve to let you spend $5.00 and then send it back to you!)

Trade dollars are immediate collectibles and increase exponentially in value over time. As collectibles, they even have their own category name – exonumia – a word coined (no pun intended) in 1960 by Russell Rulau, a noted authority on coins and coin-like objects. Numismatists collect coins and exonumists collect coin-like objects such as trade dollars. The word exonumia is a combination of the Greek exo (“out of”) and the Latin nummus (“coin”), and literally means “out[side]-of-[the category]coins”.
