Starting in 1987, Portugal released a number of prestige proof coins and sets, including some in palladium. It appears to have been a very successful series, and they all catalogue at healthy prices, according to Krause.
The central theme of the prestige proof sets was the era when Portuguese navigators were leading the world in the discovery of new lands. Each set is described as a series of coins, spanning a number of years.
