Brazil 960 Reis  1823 to 1827
Brazil 960 Reis 1823 to 1827

Most of these big, silver coins you see today are worn down to very little, leaving them with only a small collectible value. Those you see with good eye-appeal are usually common dates. But once in a while you may get lucky and come across a better date with certain details, and these can be worth well over a thousand dollars!

Struck for only five years, these coins were often overstruck on similarly-sized Spanish Colonial 8 reales coins. On the side with the four-leaf clovers, there will sometimes be a faint coat-of-arms visible in the center. Coins that show remnants of the host coin command a premium from collectors. The more of the host coin that can be seen (mint mark, assayer's initials, date etc.) the higher the premium.

NEVER CLEAN YOUR COINS - CLEANING RUINS VALUE!

Cleaned, holed, gouged, heavily scratched or otherwise damaged coins will be worth much less than the values quoted above. Refer to our 'Important Terminology' page found on the top left in order to properly interpret these catalog values.
