With only 56,000 minted, compared to 695,000 of the 2000 reis minted, this 1000 reis commemorative sells for a little more than the 2000 reis. The trouble is, however, that the 2000 has silver content, while the 1000 is made of aluminum-bronze.
Here are some approximate catalog values for the 1000 reis coin:
worn: $2 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $5
well preserved: $12
fully uncirculated: $27
Wise numismatists (coin collectors) know that now is the time to add the low-mintage 1000 reise to their collections. As time goes on, the 1000 reis coin will grow in value much faster than the 2000 reis coin.
