Coins of Portugal

Portugal is a southern European country on the Iberian Peninsula, bordering Spain. Its location on the Atlantic Ocean has influenced many aspects of its culture: salt cod and grilled sardines are national dishes, the Algarve's beaches are a major destination and much of the nation's architecture dates to the 1500s - 1800s, when Portugal had a powerful maritime empire.

An armillary sphere is a model of objects in the sky, consisting of a spherical framework of rings, centered on Earth or the Sun, that represent lines of celestial longitude and latitude and other astronomically important features, such as the ecliptic. The flag of Portugal features an armillary sphere.

In 1808, the Portuguese court, fleeing from Napoleon's invasion of Portugal moved the government to Rio de Janeiro. The countermark on this coin doubled the value to 80 Reis after April 18, 1809 to help finance the government in Brazil. The Portuguese king ruled his huge empire from Brazil for 13 years. He would have remained for the rest of his life if not for turmoil in Portugal due, among other reasons, to his long stay in Brazil after the end of Napoleon's reign.
