EXPLANATION ON OLD COIN
The Courier is indebted to Mr.
Robert Douglass, of Greensboro, for
an explanation of the abbreviated
Latin inscription on the geld coin
brought to the office one clay last week
by Mr. G. Elwood Stanton, of Randle
man Route 1, which we give in full.
It will be remembered that the
coin bears the date, 1757, and the fol
lowing inscription: "Josephus I. D. G.
Port, et Alg. Rex." Mr. Douglass'
explanation, which is quite interest
ing, follows: "The inscription is in
Latin, which was generally used on
coins of the period mentioned. The
inscription filling out the abbrevia
tions is 'Josephus I Dei Gratie
Portugal is et Algrave Rex.' Trans
lated into English it is 'Joseph 1st, by
the grace of God, King of Portugal
ami Algarve.' The coin is therefore
Portugese and probably fDund its way
to this country from Brazil, which
was at that time a Portugese colony,
Joseph 1st in Portugese spelled
'Jose' and pronounced 'Hosay' was
King of Portugal from 1750 to 1777
Algarve pronounced 'Algarvay' is
the southern part of what we now
know as Portugal. It was, however,
held by the Moors for sometime after
the rest of Portugal hr.d been con
quered, in honor of the event the
king3 of Portugal called themselves
'King of Portugal and Algarve.' "
