Brazil 75, 150, 300, and 600 Reis  1752 to 1774
Brazil 75, 150, 300, and 600 Reis 1752 to 1774

The big J on the front of this coin from Brazil stands for Jose I, king of Portugal from 1750 to 1777. The 300 reis coin in our picture comes from Heritage Auctions where it sold for $750 US dollars in a 2011 auction. The nice condition and pleasing eye appeal drove up the price of this superb specimen. As always, CoinQuest thanks Heritage for use of their coin photo. It is a beauty!

The inscription STAB SUBQ SIGN NATA means 'For this sign you shall stand.'
