About Brazilian Reais
The Brazilian Real (BRL) is the official currency of Brazil. Its plural is Reais and it uses the symbol R$. The modern real was brought in by the Central Bank of Brazil in 1994 to steady the Brazilian economy. The real is divided into 100 centavos or hundredths, and the word means ‘real’ or ‘royal’ in Portuguese.
