Dear Collectors and Fellow Numismatists

 

This is a quick opinion poll to allow you to contribute to the ongoing argument as to whether or not Griqua Town coins did circulate?

 

This should be interesting...

 

Cheers

Nick

I'm pretty sure they were all thrown in a pot and stirred around quite a bit.

Coin collectors, please stand up and be counted!

 

These are the coin collectors who voted in our "I collect ..." poll under the sticky posts. It would be nice to see fellow coin collectors vote in this poll also ...

Interesting stuff so far!

 

I find the voting so far makes for interesting reading - Regarding the three alternatives, the following patterns seems to emerge (but it is early days yet, so we should keep on monitoring the results):

Of those that have voted “Inconclusive - Not sure if the Griqua tokens circulated!” 100% are coin collectors who have indicated in the previous poll that they collect coins.

Of those that have voted “Yes, of sure the Griqua tokens circulated” 70% are coin collectors who have indicated in the previous poll that they collect coins.

 

Of those that have voted “No way did the Griqua tokens circulate!” 14% (only one single person) has indicated in the previous poll that she is a coin collector.

 

Come on everyone, keep up the voting!

 

Pierre

Would specialising in SA History, but not being a coin collector entitle one to vote on this poll?

Yes of course, everyone can vote. I was just trying to see if there is some kind of voting pattern / anomalies between coin collectors vs. those that may be not coin collectors. We will see if this is so as the voting progresses.

As far as I know, MrAerospace, MsPlod and geewhizz collect coins so it goes without saying that their spouses/partners are not ignoramuses.

Good on you Miems!

 

Something else, where do I find the "Like this" button - the one with the little heart next to it? I am looking at the whole screen in front of me now but cannot see any icon that I can click on. If you help me, I will give you a "Pierre_Henri like this" rating. I promise!

 

Kind regards

 

Pierre

Thank you Algreco.. clearing the history cache fixed the problem

 

Interesting...

 

Now let me ask all those who voted "Yes of course they did" to summarise in one short paragraph on what basis they come to this conclusion. (ie coin books like those by Hern, someone told them they did OR RESEARCH.. and if it is research I welcome them onto the other thread to debate this subject with me from a factual basis. If it is coin books or heresay .. I can only smile because they are quite simply wrong and misleading - and this has already been demonstrated in the other thread!)

 

I would also make the observation that some of those who voted no and who are not coin collectors have followed the debate on this forum on this subject and, as a result, would be better informed than many "collectors"...

PS I won't be voting in this poll because the outcome, in reality, reflects about as much of the truth on this subject as watching a glorious sunset would. Even the question asked in the poll is incorrect in that they were token coins not "coins".

 

Kind regards

Hi Guys

 

 

I think Scott has a point... Can whoever who voted Yes the tokens did circulate please provide some evidence...?

I voted yes, simply because common sense needs to prevail in this case. There are hundreds of ancient coins that have not been documented or captured in international archives and catalogues, does that mean to say they did not circulate? I doubt that!

Hi

 

You have a point but possible they circulated in other countries. Could have been anywhere.

Quick dose of common sense

 

Hi Algreco

I voted yes, simply because common sense needs to prevail in this case. There are hundreds of ancient coins that have not been documented or captured in international archives and catalogues, does that mean to say they did not circulate? I doubt that!

I'm not going to write this again.. so take this link and read carefully what I wrote here to support my argument.

 

Kind regards
