This is a round silver-colored coin.

Side one is the bust of woman in 3/4 view, wearing a crown that says "LIBERT." There is a ring of stars around the perimeter.

Side two is a star and leaves, which appear to be part of a seal, with text on the ribbon below: "15 DE NOV ANO DE 1869." The text above the seal says "200 REIS" and "MCMI" below it. The text around the perimeter reads: "REPUBLICA DOS ESTADOS UNIDOS DO BRASIL."
