  1. FEDERATIVE REPUBLIC OF BRAZIL (1942-1965, 1967-1986, 1990-1993): cruzeiro = 100 centavo
Pay attention — in numismatics there are three separate names of the coin: cruzeiro, cruzeiro novo (new cruzeiro) and cruzeiro real.

The name of the cruzeiro coin comes from the name of the constellation Southern Cross (Portuguese: Cruzeiro do Sul) depicted on the coat of arms and flag of Brazil.
