Portugal 1824 6400 reis
This specimen was lot 4319 in Goldberg sale 69 (Los Angeles, May, 2012), where it sold for $1,380. The catalog description  noted, "Portugal. Peca (6400 Reis), 1824. João VI, 1816-1826. Bust right. Reverse: Crowned arms on globe within wreath. NGC graded AU-58." This type was struck 1818-24 but is seldom seen compared to similar coins that were struck in Brazil. Many varieties exist in the design of the wreath on the reverse. Despite the insignificant mintage, the SCWC does not list this as a rare date.

Specification: 14.34 g, .917 fine gold, .423 troy oz AGW.
