Brazil 500, 1000, and 2000 Reis  1912 and 1913
Brazil 500, 1000, and 2000 Reis 1912 and 1913

These are nice silver coins from Brazil. The 500, 1000, and 2000 reis coins carry the same pattern, but there are minor variations, especially the stars-and-circle variations pictured below. In general, the circled stars are a little more valuable than the plain stars.

These coins can never be worth less than their silver value. To find the Base Value of your coin, multiply its silver content by the current price of silver.

500 REIS: 0.145 troy ounces silver
1000 REIS: 0.290 troy ounces
2000 REIS: 0.579 ounces

At today's silver price of $22 US dollars per troy ounce (look it up at kitco.com, it changes every day), the Base Value of a 1000 reis coin is BV = 0.290 x 22 = $6.40.
