Comments

- Struck in Porto Mint  and initially made to circulate in Angola. These coins were authorized to circulate in Brazil by the "Carta Régia de 10 de Fevereiro de 1704".
- The V Réis of 1695 and 1696 don't belong to the brazilian collection.
- The 1693 XX Réis with SPLENDEAT lettering is considered to be false.
- May appear with shield counterstamp (1809).

- In 1698 in known a variety without punctuation.
