The name manilla comes from the Spanish word for bracelet "Manella." Also known as slave trade money after the Europeans started using them to acquire slaves. Manillas were the first true general-purpose currency known in W. Africa, being used for ordinary market purchases, bride price, payment of fines, compensation of diviners, and for the needs of the next world, as burial money.
