We recommend Brazil 20,000 reis gold coins in Very Fine to Extra Fine (VF-XF) condition as a better alternative to modern bullion coins for bulk gold buyers. They offer all of the benefits of bullion plus collector demand, financial privacy, and the potential for additional premiums based on fundamental scarcity.
Minted from 1851 to 1889, Brazil 20,000 reis coins are the largest World gold coins we trade. Slightly heavier than U.S. $10 Liberty gold coins of the same era, they contain more than a half-ounce of pure gold.
The design features a bust of Emperor Pedro II on the obverse and the Imperial Arms of Brazil on the reverse. (A minor redesign in 1853 presents a slightly larger bust.) An enlightened monarch often compared to Queen Victoria, Pedro II reigned as Emperor of Brazil for 49 years. Beloved by the people, he fought poverty and illiteracy by establishing schools and colleges throughout Brazil, brought about industrial reform, and abolished slavery in 1888.
True scarcity, excellent value
Mintages for most years were less than 50,000 and the majority have been lost to the ravages of time and the melting pot. Precious few have survived in VF-XF condition, making them scarcer in the market than most of the European gold coins we trade in bulk. Such scarcity can drive premiums substantially higher during periods of peak demand.
Unlike most forms of gold bullion, they are exempt from broker reporting requirements. In our opinion, they're better than bullion for bulk gold buyers.
• Better than bullion. They offer extra benefits like limited supply, collector demand, complete financial privacy, and extra premium potential because of scarcity.
• True scarcity. Their true scarcity can mean higher premiums during periods of peak demand.
• Private, secure, and liquid. Unlike most forms of gold bullion, they are exempt from broker reporting requirements.
