Gomes India D. Maria II 11.01. Gomes gives a weight of 9.5 grams. The arms a re a bit unclear, but otherwise, this is a wonderful coin to find. I don't think I have ever seen it before.

Wonderful piece! I still look for a 15 Reis coin of Goa ...
There were funny denominations of 1 1/2, 2, 3, 4, 4 1/2, 5, 6, 7 1/2, 9, 10, 12, 15, 20, 30 and 60 Reis.

Here are pieces of 3, 4 1/2, 6, 12 and 2x 30 Reis (also a 1/2 Tanga):
