Why is there a word specifically for 15 cents?

They even have a word for 12.5 cents (yáál)

Why they did not introduce what each denominating coin is called. Start out with what coins are called as a whole then go into what each coin is called with a picture. And then graduate to paper bills.

seems to come from spanish for 15. but why 15. they also call a quarter two bits which i have always liked as a denomination.
