The colonial coins of Portugal are relentlessly European. This one is no exception. It makes the coin a political statement of conservatism and shortsightedness, mitigated by the thought that Goa was already insignificant in the larger scheme of things.

I find the Portuguese coinage highly interesting, not least it had a direct affect on various cultural aspects from a personal perspective.
The coin itself can be had in near UNC condition at still affordable prices, so I'd encourage you to keep looking.
