Small value copper coins were produced during the reign of Ferdinand VII using the "vellón" monetary system. Using this system, 2/4 vellón (señal) was equivalent to 1/4 real, 1/4 vellón (tlaco) was equivalent to 1/8 real, and 1/8 vellón (pilón) was equivalent to 1/16 real. The denomination on the coin (2/4) refers to 2/4 vellón.
Coin was nicknamed Senal back in its time and also the fact that it has a 2/4 value is to completely differentiate it from the Silver 1/2 Real which had the same value.
