About Brazilian Real

The Brazilian Real is the legal tender currency in Brazil. Its ISO 4217 code is BRL and its symbol is R$. Each Real is divided into 100 cents.

History of the currency of Brazil

The Real was the monetary unit used in Brazil until 1942. Between 1942 and 1994 there were large fluctuations in the Brazilian economy so several different currencies followed such as Réis, Cruceiro and Cruzado.

In 1994 the Real was adopted again as the official currency in a plan that sought to curb inflation suffered for three decades. With the new currency the economy was stabilized.

Brazilian Real notes and coins

Brazilian Real banknotes are 2, 5, 10, 20, 50 and 100 Real. Currently there are two series of notes and the two are by now legal tender. Moreover, their designs are very similars and they mantain the same motivs.

On the obverse of the banknotes there is an image of the Effigy of the Republic, the personalization of the Republic of Brasil and Portugal as well. On the reverse of the banknotes we can see images of some representative animales of the Brazilian fauna: a hawksbill sea turtle (which is critically endangered and uses the beaches of the State of Bahia, among others, to spawn), the grear egret (typical of the wet and tropical regions of the country), the red macaw (typical of the north and west regions), the golden lion tamarin (also critically endangered and typical of the atlantic forests located in the south of Rio de Janeiro), the jaguar (widely distributed in the Brazilian Amazonian forests) and a grouper fish (also declared endangered, whose fishing is prohibited) respectively.

CIRCULATING BANKNOTES OF BRAZILIAN REAL

Banknotes of Brazilian Real in circulation

Brazilian Real coins also have also two series and, as well as with the notes, both series are in circulation as the first one is still legal tender. The amounts are 1, 5, 10, 25 and 50 cents. In the second series the currencies of these denominations were renovated and the 1 Real coin was added.

On the first series coins appears the Effigy of the Republic on one side and the denomination in the other side. But on the second series the Effigy only appears in the coin of 1 Real. The other coins show the portrait of illustrious characters of the country: Pedro Álvares Cabral (portuguese navigator who discovered Brazil in the 16th century), Joaquim José da Silva Xavier Condemned for participating in the independence movement in the 18th century), D. Pedro I (proclaimer of the independence of Brazil), Manuel Deodoro da Foncesca (proclaimer and first President of the Republic) y José Maria da Silva Paranhos Júnior (statesman, diplomat and historian, considered the symbol of the country's diplomacy).
