Brazil 500 and 1000 Reis 1922 | 1000 reis 500 brazil torch hat headdress aluminum cap crown people da centenario independancia 2 7 de brazilian brasilto brasil Check the date, Paula. You likely have a 1922 coin. That was the year of Brazil's 100th birthday. Both the 500 reis and 1000 reis coins were minted with the same pattern in aluminum bronze. The 2000 reis that year looks the same on the front, but it has a different reverse and it is made of silver. The small picture shows the back of the 2000 reis coin.

Here is what the catalogs say about the value of these coins. For reference, our picture is in average circulated condition:

500 REIS (aluminum-bronze):
worn: less than $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: $1
well preserved: $2
fully uncirculated: $3
there is an error 500 reis with BRASIL spelled BBASIL which catalogs at $35 in average circulated condition

1000 REIS (aluminum-bronze):
worn: less than $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: $1
well preserved: $2
fully uncirculated: $4
there is an error 1000 reis with BRASIL spelled BBASIL which catalogs at $10 in average circulated condition

2000 REIS (0.127 or 0.228 troy ounces silver):
worn: base value (BV) of silver
average circulated: BV
well preserved: BV + $5
fully uncirculated: BV + $10

The 2000 reis was struck in 0.127 or 0.228 ounces of silver (50 percent pure or 90 percent pure, respectively), but it is basically impossible to tell which is which without chemical analysis.
