1 Centavo

The year of 1967 was marked by the launching of the Cruzeiro Novo standard, a transitory unit equivalent to 1,000 old Cruzeiros. The Centavos came back, with the coinage of 50, 20, 10, 2, and 1 Centavo coins.


10 Cruzeiros Novos

With the change of the monetary unit from Cruzeiro to Cruzeiro Novo, a stamp was applied to the notes in circulations to adapt them to the change in standard.
