Brazil 500, 1000 Reis  1924 to 1931
Brazil 500, 1000 Reis 1924 to 1931

You never know about the marijuana leaves, Chantel, but I'm pretty sure that's Miss Liberty kneeling with a cornucopia and perhaps planting a new crop!

Brazil issued many interesting patterns on their 500 and 1000 reis coins starting in 1906 and continuing until 1939, a new design every few years. The 1924 to 1931 coins are minted in aluminum bronze and carry low collector value. Here are some typical catalog values for these coins:

500 reis
worn: less that $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated (like our picture): $1
well preserved: $2
fully uncirculated: $7

1000 reis
worn: $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated (like our picture): $2
well preserved: $3
fully uncirculated: $7
1000 reis dated 1929 and 1930 are more rare, cataloging for $14 in average circulated condition.

Coin: 7385 , Genre: Colonizers and Colonies

Requester description: 1924 Hello, I have a plate tray made from Brazil coins. The denomination is 1000 Reis. The coins are all dated from 1924-1927 and its made from approximately 70 coins. I can't find the coin anywhere. It has a picture of a woman on front kneeling with stars around the edges of the coin. On the back, it has 'Brasil 1000 Reis with leaves similar to laurel leaves-although my husband thinks they look like marijuana :) I just would like to know if these coins were actual currency. They have been welded together to form this tray so I'm sure their value is zero for collectors, but still, curious. Thank you for your time!
