Indo para o Brasil? If you're heading to vibrant, dazzling, enchanting Brazil for your next holiday, you may want to brush up on your Portuguese before you go.

Introduced to Brazil in 1994, the Brazilian Real is divided into 100 centavos (cents). In 2010, a new series of banknotes was introduced, with added security enhancements and featuring different sized notes, designed to help vision-impaired people.
The BRL is also sometimes used in the neighbouring countries of Uruguay and Paraguay.

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
