NGC-certified Brazilian Gold Coins Highlight July Auction

Posted on 7/8/2020

More than 100 coins certified by NGC are part of a special Heritage Auctions sale.

A number of coins certified by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation® (NGC®) highlight a special Heritage Auctions sale of Brazilian coins. Online bidding is now underway for the auction, which ends on July 26, 2020.

Among the most anticipated coins in the sale is a Brazil 1725M Gold 20,000 Reis graded NGC AU 58. During his reign from 1707-1750, King João V of Portugal ordered the mints in Lisbon, Rio de Janeiro, Mozambique and other areas under his rule to coin new currency. King João V was able to create many different denominations of currency due to the excessive supply of gold and diamonds shipped from Brazil to Lisbon. This coin has an estimated sales price of $4,000 to $5,000.
