Details

The Grand Council of the Holy Office of the Inquisition in Portugal—the Portuguese Inquisition—was established in 1536, at the request of King Jo?o III, to combat the alleged heresy of the Protestant Reformation then sweeping through Europe. This is a tin dinheiro struck in Portuguese Malacca, a colony in the Malay Archipelago, during the reign of Jo?o III. The obverse features a St. George’s cross with letters in angles: I-S-M-A. On the reverse is a globe and astrolabe.
