Portugal 3, 5, 10, and 20 Reis  1840 to 1879
Portugal 3, 5, 10, and 20 Reis 1840 to 1879

Portugal minted copper coins in 3, 5, 10, and 20 reis denominations from 1840 to 1892. After 1882 these coins bore a likeness of Luiz I, but before that time only an ornate shield appeared on the front side of the coin. Here is a summary of catalog value for the shielded coins:

III Reis:
worn: $4 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $8
well preserved: $15
fully uncirculated: $40

V Reis:
worn: $3
average circulated: $25
well preserved: $100
fully uncirculated: $200
5 reis dated 1843, 1871, 1876 and 1877 are less common, multiply the values above by 2

X Reis:
worn: $2
average circulated: $12
well preserved: $60
fully uncirculated: $125
10 reis dated 1847, 1870 and 1874 are less common, multiply the above values by 2

XX Reis:
worn: $6
average circulated: $25
well preserved: $65
fully uncirculated: $140
20 reis dated 1870 are less common, multiply the above values by 2

Any coin with damage that heavily impairs its eye-appeal will be worth zero. This includes coins with holes, severe scratches, corrosion etc.
