Brazil 5-CENTAVOS (KM648) Dove
After two years of the "Cruzeiro real" Brazil switched to the "Real" in 1994, and as of 2016 it remains their unit of currency.
The obverse of this coin features Joaquím José da Silva Xavier -- aka Tiradentes -- who was hanged in 1792 for his participation in the independence movement. Today, he is considered a hero, and appears on this coin with a dove of peace.
