1914-1942 Brazil 5000 Reis banknote

Paper Money-World | AC coin$

There is something mystical about my bill here. Its worn hues, deeming though as it has been around for long, passing from hand to hand it still catches the eye of the beholder. It might have printing misallignments or errors. It has been named a 19th issue.

Around the years 1914 thru 1942 Brazilian currency was named "Real" and its plural "Reis". This type of currency was printed with elements of power figures and symbols of heraldry regarding the royalty governing houses, established in Río de Janeiro, Minas Gerais, Sao Paulo and Belo Horizonte.

The imponent face of the only Baron of Rio Branco is in the obverse of this 5000 reis banknote I have included in my blog. His name was Jose Da Silva Paranhos Júnior. Perhaps to most of his countrymen a rather undiscussed life regarding his properties and plantations.

This note evokes a society element of progress amidst the upheaval of an opressed popular opinion. Yet, it is a historical artistic of monetary printing in the early decades of past 20th century.

In my own words.
