Portugal 5 de Outubro de 1910 Escudo 1914
We're not sure where you see the '20 escudos' denomination, JonhyBoy - this design was only used for the 1 escudo coin minted in 1914 to commemorate the Portuguese 5th of October revolution in 1910 - the coup d'etat which replaced the old monarchy with the modern republican regime.
Catalog values are fairly high, thanks to the somewhat low mintage of a million coins, and the breathtakingly beautiful design!
The values shown in some coin catalogs for these coins are a bit too high compared to actual values realized at auction for these coins. The values given below are catalog values derived from successfully sold coins at recent web auctions:
worn: $20 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $100
well preserved: $150
fully uncirculated: $250
Remember to adjust these catalog values in accordance with our Terminology page.
