Scan of the misleading extract out of the book recording Rev John Campbell's first visit to South Africa that is constantly referred to by numismatists. My additions clarifying basis shown in brackets and in red. Without a shop how would they have traded the coins?
There was no shop at Griquatown until decades later! Read below to see that any claim they were currency is ridiculous. Disrgarding the many facts detailed with links below one has to look no further than the experience of the owners of the Strachan stores in East Griqualand fifty years later.
They also initially issued tokens in with no holes in them. Despite the fact the stores offered a place to trade the coins something that did not exist in Griquatown in the s the son of the founder of Strachan and Co wrote in his diary notes certified as accurate by the last Managing Director of the company, Ken Strachan: The first minting was, like the others, done in England, and it is thought to be prior toprobably as early as This was not a success as it had no hole near the rim and could not be strung on a string around the owners neck - the natives having no purses in those days.
Its logical that the Griquatown tokens fifty years earlier would have faced exactly the same hurdle as they had no hole and this would have been exacerbated by the fact that there was no trading store to use them.

Click on the large text below in the red box to see the highly detailed 12 page research supporting and endorsing Balson's prior research carried below that, regardless of intent, the Griquatown tokens were a complete failure and never circulated.
The book includes a detailed report on the Griquas at Griqua Town Chapter II pgs but makes no reference to any coinage being used there. Marais, the Professor of History at the University of the Witwatersrand, refers at length to Campbell's book and the meeting where the Bastards adopted the name "Griqua", incorporated new laws and in which Campbell mentions the idea of coins.
It is clear that Marais had, by his omission, completely discounted the theory that Griqua town token coins had ever circulated at Griquatown.
This observation is supported by Marais' own commentary in the book that between and Griqua Town was a "ghost town". His views,as will be seen in the points below are supported by the research of Prof Arndt University of Pretoria and South African researcher and historian Karel Schoeman.
Facts confirming that they were nothing more than token coins There is no date on these coins, this is common to patterns and token coins - no one is sure when they were minted.
Read Scott's view on the values here. Campbell's own letters in see Schoeman reference in links above confirm that their acceptance by the Griqua depended upon the Dutch trading stores south of the Orange River accepting them.
They never did, nobody did. The reason trading stores refused to accept them is quite simple. The coins had no parity with British coins or the Rijksdaalder making them useless and no "value" was ever agreed upon for the silver pieces.
The reason Helm never circulated them and the reason the Griqua refused to accept them. There is strong evidence that Rev Campbell brought these token coins to South Africa in on his second trip long after they were supposed to have circulated and been withdrawn. There was nothing on which to base their introduction into the community at Griquatown Helm complained in writing in that the Griquas refused to accept the token coins - source here.
Traders south of the Orange River refused to accept the coins making them worthless - source here. The entire "trade" of the Griquas spread throughout the region in was only worth ZAR per annum - even this figure by Campbell's own admission is exaggerated.
Even Campbell noted in his second trip in that regular trades did not exist in Griquatown All trade in Griquatown at and after this time was by barter - as described in various reports by Missionaries and hunters.
The resident population of Griquatown scattered in returning to their nomadic lifestyle after a major fall out with the missionary, Anderson. Less than men, women and children remained. The Griqua population lost faith in Anderson in so why would the few that remained in Griquatown have any faith in Anderson's token coins?
See Rev Philips comments on this here. The coins were not holed so could not be carried with their beads around their necks - they would have been lost. Examples of holed copies found today are those used as jewellery - but never circulated.Fable III is an action role-playing open world video game, developed by Lionhead Studios and published by Microsoft Game Studios for the Xbox and Microsoft nationwidesecretarial.com third game in the Fable series, the story focuses on the player character's struggle to overthrow the King of Albion, the player character's brother, by forming alliances and building support for a revolution.
