Cruzeiro broke with Portuguese and Brazilian traditions to write amounts in foreign currency. Instead of using the double-dash dollar sign (cifrão) as a thousands separator (as was common with Reais) or as a fractional decimal separator (as Portugal adopted when switching to escudo and centavos), the cruzeiro followed its traditional notation for numbers in general, using the period („.”) and the comma („,”) for both functions. Six coin denominations were introduced in 1942: R$0.10, R$0.20 and R$0.50, and R$1, 2 and R$5. The Centavos were first minted in cupronickel and converted to aluminum bronze in 1943, while the Cruzeiros were minted in aluminum bronze from the beginning. The Cr$5 was not minted after 1943. On November 1, 1942, the real was replaced by a new currency, the „cruzeiro”, with an official value of 1,000 rupees (mil réis, pronounced mirréis) – which had long been used informally as a monetary unit for most retail stores. The old notes and coins of Réis remained in use for some time.  Some were stamped with Cruzeiros` amount. The new Cruzeiro banknotes were printed from 1943.
Originally, the project of the late 1920s was that the amount to be converted into cruzeiro would be 10,000 rupees (ten mil-réis) and that the new currency was pegged to the gold standard, but this project was cancelled and the cruzeiro was put into circulation at the face value of Rs 1,000 (one mil-réis). without being bound to the gold standard. This changed the situation because coins below 10 centavos no longer existed in this monetary standard. In 1962, Law 4190 stipulated that Cruzeiro banknotes had to bear the words „República dos Estados Unidos do Brasil”, „Tesouro Nacional” and „Valor Legal” on the front of the notes, and established the issuance of the $5,000 note put into circulation in 1963. In December 1964, Law 4511 established the end of centavos, the creation of 1 Cr$, Cr$2, Cr$5, Cr$10, Cr$20, Cr$50, Cr$100, Cr$200 and Cr$500, as well as the issuance of the R$10,000 note, which would be the only banknote of the standard issued by the Brazilian central bank. with the title „Banco Central” instead of the title „Tesouro Nacional”. other banknotes issued in this monetary standard. The last banknotes of this standard, dating from 1967, had a stamp of equivalence with the corresponding value of the banknote in Cruzeiros Novos, which was used provisionally for the transition between banknotes produced abroad and the new Centavo coins minted from 1967 and banknotes produced from 1970, mainly by Casa da Moeda do Brasil. The name Cruzeiro was then reused for two other currencies, which were official in 1970-1986 (originally called Cruzeiro Novo to avoid confusion between the new and old currency) and 1990-1993.

Since colonial times, the main currency in Brazil has been the real; First the same as the Portuguese currency and a separate currency after the country`s independence in 1822. The name Cruzeiro for the Brazilian currency was proposed in 1926 by the Brazilian economist Carlos Inglês de Sousa (1882-1948). [ref. The first editorial of the Brazilian weekly Cruzeiro apparently refers to this proposal as the alleged inspiration for its name.   The first banknotes were prints on earlier Mil Réis banknotes with denominations of 5 Cr$, 10 Cr$, 20 Cr$, 50 Cr$, 100 Cr$, 200 Cr$ and 500 Cr$.
The regular issuance of Cruzeiro notes began in 1943 with the addition of C$1,000 notes. The R$1 and R$1 notes were introduced in 1944 and ceased production after 1958. Other models were then introduced in 1956 and 1957, eventually leading aluminum to replace aluminum bronze in all parts. The dollar sign was retained, but as part of the new currency symbol „Cr$” (two separate letters and a one-digit dollar sign with a space before it, which should be written before the number, „regardless of amount.”) 1] In later years, however, the two-beat variant of the character was also often used, and space was usually omitted.  In addition, some typewriters and fonts offered a typographic ligature „₢” (available in Unicode) to replace the „Cr” (creating „₢$”).
