    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. We can tell from the sharp, crisp details of the strike that this coin was struck with fresh, unworn dies. Amazing thick piece. 

    The coin is about 1 3/4 ounces of 22K gold! And that's not including the luxury weight and width 18K gold bezel weight.

    And a super rare 2000 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. 

    I set coins like these in 18K gold instead of 14K gold as most of the coins and jewelry of that period were made from 22K gold. the the 18K gold give the treasure an amazing, regal and royal, warm glow.

    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.
