Did you know? BRL Currency Facts

  • In Portuguese, the word "real" means both royal and real
  • Instead of using a decimal point for the decimal separator, the Brazilian reals have a comma. The thousands separator for Brazilian money is the period. So, R$6,00 is actually 6 reais, not R$600, while R$6.000 is six thousand reais
  • The female effigy on all Brazilian banknotes, a young woman wearing a crown of bay leaves, is an important symbol of the Brazilian Republic
  • Each Brazilian banknote has a different animal on the back, for example, the R$20 has a golden lion tamarin and the R$100 has a dusky grouper, a type of fish
  • A constellation is printed on each Brazilian coin
