2000 Brazil 2 Reais Bill

One of the largest segment of tourist to NYC is from Brazil. In general Brazilians tend to carry a lot of money and some are kind enough to leave some of their money if asked. That is how I got this older 2 reais note.

Blue and black ink with the head of Rep├║blica on the front, BANCO CENTRAL DO BRASIL, DEUS SEJA LOUVADO (God Be Praised), serial number, and signatures.

2 DOIS REAIS (2 TWO REAIS), TARTUGA MARINHA, (SEA TURTLE), CASA DE MONEDA BRASIL (MINT OF BRAZIL)
Issued in 2000 this was the first 2 reais note. It has all the typical security features of modern notes like micro-writing, watermarks, and anti-copying designs. By 2005 the 1 real notes was discontinued and this 2 reais note was the smallest circulating note still being printed.

In 2010 a currency redesign was needed to serve a healthy economy. More security features were added and different sizes were made for the visually impaired. Most of the artistic design elements stayed the same and the older notes were not demonetized so they still circulate.

Here's the stats for this bill...
Type/Country: 2 Reais / Brazil
Year: 2000
Printings: Unknown
Printed: Unknown
Run: Unknown 
Value:  $1.00 in Fine (about $0.85 in exchange value)
