Brazil 160, 320, 640, and 960 Reis (STAB SUBQ SIGN NATA)  1809 to 1822
Brazil 160, 320, 640, and 960 Reis (STAB SUBQ SIGN NATA) 1809 to 1822

Kings named Joao (Joannes, John) ruled Portugal from 1799 to 1822. Brazil, as a colony, used the JOANNES inscription on their coins during this period. The large silver reis coins of the period come with two major designs, shown in our pictures, and include the globe and cross design with crowns, wreathes, and shields in various combinations. Coins on this page carry these characteristics:

- they are silver, dated between 1809 and 1822
- they have the JOANNES inscription
- they have the STAB SUBQ SIGN NATA (For this sign you shall stand) inscription

Values given are very approximate. If you have a nice looking specimen of one of these coins, be sure to take it to a knowledgeable collector or professional coin dealer for an in-person look.

Requester description: 1821 On one side: 'JOANNES.VID.G.PORT.BRAS.ET.ALG.REX 'is written in a circular fashion near the circumference. At the centre: '640', (below the 640) '1821', (below 1821) 'R'. There is a crown at the top. From the bottom, two shoots go up and out, having leaves all along and a flower at the top of both of them. On the back side: There is a globe like structure (similar to the ones that Brazil coins have) and on the 4 sides (top, bottom, left and right) of the globe, there is a triangular protrusion. In a circular fashion(in the space between the triangular protrusions), these words are written: ' STAB', 'SUBQ', 'SIGN' and 'NATA'.
