- This article is about the Portuguese coin. For the currency of São Tomé and Príncipe, see São Tomé and Príncipe dobra.
The name "dobra" was not used again until the reign of John V (1706-1750), when the "dobra de oito escudos" (8 escudos) and "dobra de quatro escudos" (4 escudos) were introduced, respectively valued at 12,800 and 6400 reis. In accordance with a proclamation made in 1732, the 8 escudo coin was discontinued, and over time disappeared from circulation. Also, in 1731 pattern "dobra" coins denominated at 16 and 24 escudos were minted but never put into circulation. In 1750, the dobra, now reduced in value to only 4 escudos, or 6400 reis, received the colloquial name "peca", which was used until production of the coin ceased in 1799.
