I put that legend in the Google translate machine and got this reply.

concurso moeda da sorte 25,000,000$ = tender currency of luck   8)  So not quite what the Portuguese used to put on their coins ??? but looks good to foreign eyes.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

I think you may have happened on an interesting government prize draw Mal.  8)
Just imagine if the mint actually produced a special piece which could be traded in for mega money - wouldn't that be fun!  ;D
Mind you they occasionally do it mistakenly  ::)  But, good on them!
