When a structure-bound trader is killed, a floating silver coin icon appears above their point of death. As long as this coin remains in the world, the trader will respawn after a random amount of time, which can be anything from a few minutes to over an hour. It is necessary to keep the chunk loaded for the trader to respawn, so make sure to stay in the vicinity.
As of Update 34, the new trader will respawn with exactly the same items and prizes as before. The time required for the trader to respawn was also reduced in this update.
If there is not enough room for a trader to spawn, the coin will gradually rise up through any obstacles in its way, guaranteeing an eventual respawn.
Trader respawns can be broken in creative mode by simply hitting the hovering silver coin. You should not shoot the coin in survival since your arrow will fly back at you and damage you. The same applies to invasion spawners.
Middle-clicking on the coin in creative mode will give you the spawn egg for the mob.
Travelling traders do not create a floating coin when killed and therefore do not respawn, since new ones will always be travelling over Middle-earth. The same applies to traders that are not connected to a certain building but spawn randomly, like Dwarven miners. All traders will create a floating coin if they have been spawned via creative mode or a spawn egg, but will not create a coin if spawned via commands.
