This is part of the nice series of coins struck on the 400th Year of Colonization. Here it feature the 3/4 facing figure of Martim Afonso de Sousa. He was commander of the first official Portuguese expedition into mainland of the colony of Brazil in 1530. By 1532 he had established Sao Paulo, which became the capital, as was a sugar mill and industry.
The land now called Brazil was claimed for the Portuguese Empire on 22 April 1500, with the arrival of the Portuguese fleet commanded by Pedro Álvares Cabral. The Portuguese encountered indigenous peoples divided into several tribes, most of whom spoke languages of the Tupi–Guarani family, and fought among themselves. Though the first settlement was founded in 1532, colonization effectively began in 1534, when King John III of Portugal divided the territory into the fifteen private and autonomous Captaincy Colonies of Brazil.
