Republic of Ghana 1 Cedi Gold Note Aurum®
The Republic of Ghana’s 1 Cedi gold note is the country’s first legal tender issue using patented Aurum® technology. This note 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.
In 2018, the Republic of Ghana officially surpassed the Republic of South Africa as the largest producer of gold on the African continent. With an output of 4.8 million ounces Ghana became the first nation to supplant South Africa as the leading producer of gold on the continent. This issue celebrates the Republic of Ghana’s long history as a gold producing country and is the second legal tender issue produced by Valaurum, Inc.
