Cruzado Novo (1989)
Coin: 10 Centavos - Prospector
Note: 100 Cruzados Novos - Cecília Meireles

In 1989, a new attempt to curb inflation resulted in a monetary reform that introduced the Cruzado Novo standard, with its unit corresponding to a thousand Cruzados.
The pictures are of a 10 Centavos coin, bearing the figure of a prospector, and a 100 Cruzados Novos note, bearing the effigy of the writer Cecília Meireles.
