Portugal Madeira Islands 5, 10, and 20 Reis 1842 to 1852

The Madeira Islands are located 500 miles south and west of Portugal off the coast of north Africa. Early colonies from Portugal minted 5, 10, and 20 reis coins with roman numerals V, X, and XX on the reverse, respectively. The 5 reis coins are quite rare; 10 and 20 reis specimens get valuable only in better condition.
