Description

An Extremely Elusive 640 Reis

Joao VI Prince Regent 640 Reis 1816-B, KM256.1, AU58 NGC, impeccably sharp design features with aged deep gray patina. Struck over an earlier coin with portions of the host coin visible. This is the first 1816 640 Reis we have seen from the Bahia Mint. Kurt Prober lists it as "Muito Rara" or "Very Rare" in his "Catalog of Brazilian Coins". Gomes' latest (2006) edition simply says "Rare". In any event, this is perhaps a once in a generation opportunity to obtain one of the rarest silver issues of colonial Brazil.
From The Santana Collection of 640 Reis.
