BANK OF GHANA UNVEILS NEW COINS AND BANKNOTES

"The Bank of Ghana has unveiled five new bank notes and six coins
to be circulated from 1st July 2007.

"he introduction of the new currency has become necessary as a result
of re-denomination of the Ghanaian currency the Cedi, which takes effect
on July 1, 2007.

"The new Ghana Cedi notes have been designed to pay tribute to the
“Big Six” in the nation's history, who contributed immensely to the
social, political and economic development of Ghana. Their pictures
have been embossed on the front view of all the notes.

"The Ghana Cedi notes come in One Ghana cedi (GH¢1), Five Ghana cedi
(GH¢5), Ten Ghana cedi (GH¢10), Twenty Ghana Cedi (GH¢20) and Fifty
Ghana cedi (GH¢50).

"The Ghana Cedi coins range from one Ghana pesewas (1Gp), five Ghana
pesewas (5Gp), ten Ghana pesewas (10Gp), twenty Ghana pesewas (20Gp),
and fifty Ghana pesewas (50Gp).

"The new notes have colourful pictures depicting the country’s
prominent monuments and key figures. For instance, the GH¢50 depicts
the Christianborg Castle, the seat of government at the back and the
GH¢20 shows the Supreme Court Building representing the rule of law
also at the back."
