Hans V. writes: I have a Portuguese coin dated 1882. The description on the front is the bust of D. Luiz. I. Rei. De. Portugal. Which is also the inscription of the wording. On the reverse is a laurel wreath with XX REIS 1882. I would appreciate it kindly if you could let me know if this coin has any collectors value. Regards. Hans
