Here is my best explanation:

'younger relative' is the definition.

'good african currency's ready' is the subsidiary indication.

'good' becomes 'g' (abbreviation).

'african currency' becomes 'rand'.

'ready' becomes 'son' (I can't explain this - if you can you should believe this answer much more).

'g'+'rand'+'son'='grandson'

'for' is the link.

This clue was last seen in The Independent

(Other definitions for grandson that I've seen before include "Relative", "Male descendant", "Descendant", "Dons rang (anag) - relative", "Male offspring, third generation (8)", "Male relative", "Young male relative", "Male child of one's child", "Rang Don's relative" and "Daughter's boy".)
