    Description

    Jose I gold 6400 Reis 1765/4-B, KM172.1, Russo-395, Gomes-54.18, MS65 NGC. Quite a strong strike with incredible sharpness in the King's peruque. The reverse is as flawless as 6400 Reis from the Bahia mint get. Gorgeous coin.

    Jose, born on June 6, 1714, was the third child of King João V of Portugal and Archduchess Maria Anna of Austria. At birth, he had an older brother, an older sister and three younger brothers. When Jose's older brother died at the age of two, Jose officially became the Prince of Brazil and the heir to the throne.  On January 19, 1729, Jose married Mariana Victoria of Spain. Together they had four daughters that survived infanthood.  

    In 1750 at the age of 36, upon the death of his father King João V,  Jose ascended to the Portuguese throne gaining the title King Jose I of Portugal.  Upon his succession, Jose I nearly immediately opted for a leisurely existence away from the limelight, appointing Marquis of Pombal to manage the day to day decisions of the throne.  Around the same time, with the belief that his days of fathering children had ended, he decreed that his oldest daughter, Maria, would be his heir apparent.  From that time forward, Jose I would devote much of his time to hunting and the opera -  assembling what would become one of the greatest collections of operatic scores in Europe.  On February 24, 1777, at the age of 62, Jose I passed away.
