History

From the Colonial period to 1942

The Portuguese real (plural réis) was the currency used by the first Portuguese settlers to arrive in the then New World, but the first official money to circulate bearing the name "real" was actually printed in 1654 by the Dutch, during their occupation of part of the Brazilian Northeast. The colonial real was not sub-divided in smaller units. The real (plural réis) was the unit of currency in Portugal until 1911. ...

The real became Brazil's official currency in 1690, and it would remain as such until 1942, when it was replaced by the cruzeiro at a rate of 1000 réis = 1 cruzeiro. Events Giovanni Domenico Cassini observes differential rotation within Jupiters atmosphere. ... 1942 (MCMXLII) was a common year starting on Thursday (the link is to a full 1942 calendar). ... // First Cruzeiro, 1942-1967 The cruzeiro (Cr$) was the monetary unit of Brazil from 1942 to 1986. ...


The real was affected by inflation during its long lifespan and the base currency unit shifted from one real to mil réis (one thousand réis) and to one conto de réis (one million réis) in the final years of the República Velha era. One conto de réis was represented by the symbol Rs written before the value and by a dollar sign. 350 réis was written as "Rs 350",1,712 réis, "Rs 1$712" and 1,020,800 réis was written as "Rs 1:020$800". This means that the colon functioned as the millions comma and the $ sign as the thousands comma. // The Constitutionalist Revolution From 1889 to 1930, the government was a constitutional democracy, with the presidency alternating between the dominant states of São Paulo and Minas Gerais. ...


This currency unit was not subdivided.


1994 to the Present

The modern real (plural reais) was implemented on 1 July 1994, during the presidency of Itamar Franco, when Fernando Henrique Cardoso was the Minister of Finance, as part of a broader plan to stabilize the Brazilian economy, known as Plano Real, replacing the short-lived cruzeiro real. is the 182nd day of the year (183rd in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

The Plano Real (Portuguese, Real Plan) was a set of measures taken to stabilize the Brazilian economy in the early 1990s, under the direction of Fernando Henrique Cardoso as the Minister of Finance. ... The cruzeiro real (CR$) was a short-lived monetary unit in Brazil which replaced the last version of the cruzeiro, with 1,000 cruzeiros = 1 cruzeiro real. ...


On 1 July 1994, the real became legal tender, with R$ 1.00 = 1 URV (Unidade Real de Valor = Real Value Unit) a non-monetary currency. At that day, the CR$ to URV average exchange rate was set at CR$ 2,750.00/URV (the exchange rate of the US dollar to the cruzeiro real at that day), and a massive banknote changeover process was undertaken, due to the demonetization of the cruzeiro real. is the 182nd day of the year (183rd in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

As a result of multiple currency reforms, the present real is equivalent to 2.75 x 1018 pre-1942 réis.


The real initially appreciated (gained value) against the U.S. dollar as a result of the large amount of capital inflows in late 1994 and 1995. It then began a gradual depreciation process, culminating in the 1999 January Brazilian currency crisis, when the Real suffered a maxi-devaluation, and fluctuated wildly. Following this period (1994-1999) of a quasi-fixed exchange rate, an inflation-targeting policy was instituted by new central bank president Arminio Fraga, which effectively meant that the fixed-exchange period was over. However, the currency was never truly "free," being more accurately described as a managed or "dirty" float, with frequent central bank interventions to manipulate its dollar price.


The currency suffered a gradual depreciation until late 2002, when the prospect of the election of PT's (Labour Party) candidate Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, considered a radical populist by sectors of the financial markets, prompted another currency crisis and a spike in inflation, as many Brazilians fearing another default or a resumption of heterodox economic policies purchased tangible assets as an inflation hedge or just simply took their money out of the country. At its worst point in October of 2002, the Real actually reached its historic low of almost R$4 per US$1. However, following assurances by then central bank president Arminio Fraga and repeated assertions by Lula and his finance minister that orthodox macroeconomic policies would be continued (including inflation-targeting, primary fiscal surplus and floating exchange rate, as well as continued payments of the public debt) the real has been getting stronger and stronger against the dollar and, since the beginning of 2005, most other world currencies as well. In the year of 2007, in spite of the various attempts of the Brasilian "Banco Central" (Central Bank) to keep real low, it has grown stronger against the dollar. Nowadays, R$ 2 = US$ 1.

In January of 2006, the Brazilian Central Bank discontinued the manufacturing of the one real banknote. The existing units continue to be valid, but without constant renewal, the intention is to extinguish this denomination for a banknote — it is expected to happen over time, as the existing banknotes deteriorate and are eventually removed from circulation. The objective is to keep only the one real coin in this denomination. The one real banknote is the first and thus far only banknote released when the Real was reintroduced as the official currency of Brazil to be discontinued (which took place approximately twelve years after its creation).

Coins

There are two types of coins for each denomination. The first type, released in 1994, was made of stainless steel. Those coins are called First Family. Later, the government decided to release a second set of coins, with different colors and sizes, to facilitate the use by the general public and hinder counterfeiting. Those are the Second Family, released in 1998. Year 1994 (MCMXCIV) was a common year starting on Saturday (link will display full 1994 Gregorian calendar). ...

Both families are equally valid, but the government has plans to eventually remove the First Family from circulation and keep only the second set of coins. On December 23, 2003, the First Family's one real coin started to be withdrawn from circulation, being replaced by the Second Family's one as they arrive at a bank. In November of 2005, the Brazilian Central Bank decided to discontinue the manufacturing of new units of the one cent coin, from both families. The existing units, from both the First and the Second Families, continue to be fully valid, but without renewal, this denomination is expected to disappear from circulation gradually. The explanation given was that the Brazilian people are prone to overlook a denomination as low as one cent, causing the coins to be underused and thus making them expendable.

The real (plural réis) was the currency used by the first Portuguese settlers to arrive in the then New World, but the first official money to circulate bearing the name "real" was actually printed in 1654 by the Dutch, during their occupation of part of the Brazilian Northeast.
The real was affected by inflation during its long lifespan and the base currency unit shifted from one real to mil réis (one thousand réis) and to one conto de réis (one million réis) in the final years of the República Velha era.
The real (plural reais) was implemented on 1 July 1994, during the presidency of Itamar Franco, when Fernando Henrique Cardoso was the Minister of Finances, as part of a broader plan to stabilize the Brazilian economy, known as Plano Real, substituting the short-lived cruzeiro real.
