    Please correct mistake saying that 10 reals gold coin is listed as silver coin?

    Where I can buy or purchase this Brazil 2014 World Cup commemorative coins? And I am interested buying 2016 Rio de Janeiro Summer Olympic commemorative coins. So how I can order these commemorative coins of Brazil?

    Hello Kiochi,

    Currently, the Brasilian Central Bank does not have an office to fulfil orders domestically or internationally – most Brasilians go to the regional offices of the Central Bank and just purchase them over the counter. The Banco do Brasil, a commercial bank in the country are also distributing the coins through their branches.

    I have tried to make contact with both banks, if I receive a reply to my enquiries, I will post any ordering information for international orders here.

    Hello S.C.,

    Having spoken to the Brasilian Mint representatives at the World Money fair recently, I have been told that the official distributors outside Brasil for the new FIFA coins is MDM distributors who are based in Germany.

    I don’t see any of the information for the FIFA coins at the moment but have a look at their website at: http://www.mdm.de/ and do send them an e-mail to confirm they are handling the coins.
