Ghana's 2007 Dated Coins
A re-valuation of the Cedi along with a new series of coins and a new series of banknotes were first announced about 3rd May 2007. The re-valuation and the release of the new coins and banknotes took place on 3rd July 2007. Four zeroes were lost from the Cedi. 10000 of the old "Cedis" became 1 of the new "Ghana Cedi". One consequence of this is that the sub-division of the "Ghana Cedi", the "Ghana Pesewa" has some relevance. Following previous definitions, the "Ghana Pesewa" is one-hundreth of a "Ghana Cedi". The new coins range from 1 Ghana Pesewa to 1 Ghana Cedi. Like the previous coinage issue, dated 1999, these new coins were all made by the Royal Canadian Mint. They are made from steel with special multi-ply plating - as used by the mint in the production of recent circulation coins for many other countries e.g. Barbados, Canada, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea and Uganda.
The country name "GHANA", the date
(only "2007" as yet) and the Ghanian
coat-of-arms are to be found on the obverse of all of the coins. Read
