Pedro I gold 6400 Reis 1822-R, KM361, Russo-592, AU55 NGC. Beautiful deep orange and magenta patina. In superb condition for the type. Provenance dates 105 years to the collection of legendary Brazilian numismatist Augusto Souza Lobo. In the 1940's it was part of Brazilian magnate Guilherme Guinle's collection and acquired by Dr. Monteiro in 1986. On his book, he quotes the piece as "the charming flower in the garden of Brazilian numismatic arts".



The 6400 Reis of 1822 was the first coin struck in independent Brazil, proclaiming its first Emperor, Pedro I of Brazil. On September 7th of that year on the banks of the Ipiranga river, in what is today the city of Sao Paulo, Pedro called for "Independence or Death". Pedro had received orders from his father to return to Lisbon and affirm his loyalty to the Portuguese Crown. Pedro defied his father's order and stayed.
