Brazilian Reis

During the colonial period, Brazil did not have its own mint for the production of coins. Instead, Brazilian coins, including Silver Reis, were typically minted in Portugal or other European mints. These coins were then shipped to Brazil for circulation in the colony.

The most significant mint for the production of Portuguese colonial coinage, including Brazilian Reis, was the Casa da Moeda (House of the Mint) in Lisbon, Portugal. Established in 1720, the Casa da Moeda was responsible for producing coinage for Portugal's overseas territories, including Brazil.

The production of Silver Reis in Brazil was carried out under the authority of the Portuguese Crown, and the coins were struck with designs and inscriptions approved by Portuguese authorities. The Silver Reis circulated widely in Brazil as the primary unit of currency for everyday transactions.

It's important to note that during the colonial period, Brazil was primarily an exporter of raw materials, such as gold, silver, and agricultural products, to Portugal and other European countries. As a result, much of the coinage circulating in Brazil, including Silver Reis, was imported rather than minted locally.
