Set of 3 silver coins of 1000 Reis, 500 Reis and 200 Reis issued in 1898 - the 400th anniversary of Vasco Da Gama's first voyage to India. The obverse of all the three coins carries conjoined busts of King Carlos I of Portugal and Queen Amelia. The reverse gives the value of the coin and the occasion for minting (4th century of Vasco Da Gama's voyage). The engraver (designer) of the coin was Venancio Alves - his initials 'V ALVES' can be on the right side at the base of King Carlos's bust.
