Brazil 1716B 4000 reis rev H3029-30385.jpg

This specimen was lot 30385 in Heritage sale 3029 (New York, January 2014), where it sold for $2,350. The catalog description[1] noted, "João V gold 4000 Reis 1716-B, MS62 NGC. A highly attractive example of this early date from the Bahia Mint; the surfaces exhibit well-struck details and subtle patina. Ex: "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate' Partnership of Eric P Newman/B.G. Johnson." This type was struck in Rio 1707-27 and in Bahia 1714-27 (KM 106). Later issues (1749-1822) were only 8.07 g, likely explaining the scarcity of these early issues.

Recorded mintage: unknown.

Specification: 10.75 g, .917 fine gold, .317 troy oz AGW.

Catalog reference: KM 106, Fr-30.
