Money, Moolah, Cash

Notas (Notes)

All bank notes have the statue representation of the Republic shown in the the front.

R$ 50 Onça pintada (Jaguar)

If you look at the two versions you'll note (ha ha) that the word fifty  is spelled a bit differently from one version to the other. That's because the umlaut accent (known in Portuguese as the "trema") was recently removed from the Portuguese language during the orthographic reform. So while the word is still pronounced the same, fifty is now spelled "cinquenta", not "cinqüenta".

The "old" version of the R$50 bill

The new R$ 50 bank note.
