Republic of Ghana 1 Cedi Aurum®

The Republic of Ghana’s 1 Cedi gold bill is the country’s first legal tender issue using patented Aurum® technology. This bill pays homage to the “Cedi” or shell money, the form of currency that circulated goods and people throughout Europe, Africa, and the New World. The obverse depicts the African Liberty shown as a proud woman looking to the future. Cutting-edge printed security features have been embedded throughout the artwork for an investment that is both secure and verifiable.

This issue celebrates the Republic of Ghana’s long history as a gold-producing country. In 2018, the Republic of Ghana officially surpassed the Republic of South Africa as the largest producer of gold on the African continent. The 1 Cedi gold bill is also the second legal tender issue produced by Valaurum, Inc.
