Footnotes

  • In 1898 Samuel Marks was allowed the extraordinary privilege of using the state mint for a day. Marks used the opportunity to strike 215 gold tickeys, – three-penny pieces, that were normally made in silver as souvenirs for his relatives and friends, including President Kruger and members of the Volksraad. The gold would certainly have come from the Sheba mine near Barberton which was the only gold mine in which Marks had a substantial stake.
