The Spanish mints feature large issues of a variety of copper coins which did not circulate at all in the Spanish American colonies. In the predecimal system which obtained until 1847, 34 maravedis = one real of silver. This two maravedis was worth 1/136 of a dollar; history does not record the reason for the odd division. This type was struck in Segovia 1836-50 and was accompanied by copper one, four and eight maravedis. The type is not rare but scarce in nice condition.

Recorded mintage: unknown.

Specification: copper.

Catalog reference: KM 532.4.
