Portugal Gives Birth to “The Age of Discovery.”

When thinking of great explorers and empires of the past, the names that spring to mind are Alexander the Great, the Roman Empire, Columbus, Great Britain, Sir Francis Drake, and perhaps the Dutch… but would it surprise you to know that Europe’s longest-lived empire, and the country and its country-men who discovered much of the world for Europe is, in fact, Portugal.

At the dawn of the modern age in the early 1400’s, the son of Portugal’s King Joao I, Prince Henry the Navigator, spearheaded the exploration of the world, becoming the principal sponsor and patron of Portuguese exploration efforts.  Soon, Portuguese vessels were sailing the Atlantic Ocean, discovering the Atlantic archipelagos including the Azores, Madeira and Cape Verde.

Robert's Notes: WOW! Is all I can say about this stunning coin. Virtually  uncirculated. And a super rare 4000 reis denomination. A coin of this quality and rarity is up there in the top 1-3 percent of what is available in the world. You can still see the mint luster in the fields.

I use 18K gold to created a luxury weight bezel as the coins and jewelry from this time period were usually crafted from 22K gold, and the 18K gives the coins and pendant a warm, royal and regal look and feel.

A stunning IN HOC SIGNO VINCES: "In This Sign Conquer." Originally a Greek phrase, the Roman emperor Constantine the Great adopted the motto after having a vision of Christ's Cross before a battle in 312 A.D. 

You just don't get anymore beautiful than this.

From their initial voyages, the Portuguese built an empire throughout the world – territories that are now a part of 53 different sovereign states.  The Portuguese Empire spanned nearly 600 years, from the capture of Ceuta in 1415 to the grant of sovereignty to East Timor in Southeast Asia in 2002.

This coin and its stunning images and inscription are a surviving testament to the longest-lived modern European empire in the world.
