Accept The Improved One Ghana Cedi Coin And Use It: BoG Tells Ghanaian



The public has been urged by the Bank of Ghana (BoG) to accept and use the enhanced one Ghana cedi coin.

The GHS 1 coin now has improved security features, according to a statement from the BoG on Tuesday, December 6.

Starting on Monday, December 12, 2022, the improved GHS1 coin will be in circulation.

The coin’s shape, form, and images, including the coat of arms on the front and the scale of justice on the back, are identical to those of the current GHS 1 coin.

The improved GHS1 coin has an inner silver layer and an exterior gold layer. The coin features a noticeable rough edge and a latent picture that appears below the Scale of Justice on the back in the shape of a rectangle.

When tilted, the latent picture transforms from a radiating star to a symbol for the One Ghana Cedi that is sandwiched between two stars.

Up until the previous coin is gradually removed from circulation, the upgraded and existing GHS1 coins will co-circulate.

“The Bank encourages the public to accept the coins and use them,”  it iterated.
