Brazil has only ever issued one plastic banknote. It was in the year 2000 and celebrated 500 years since the discovery of Brazil in 1500 by the Portuguese explorer Pedro Alves Cabral (P248a) The front of the 10 reias note shows a portrait of Cabral in the foreground with a view of Brazil as it was when he discovered it in the background. The back references modern Brazil with vignettes of its citizens. This is a pretty note and has proved very elusive.
