The Ghanian Cedi

The Ghanian Cedi is signified by the currency sign: GH₵ and currency code: GHS. This is the official currency of Ghana and one Ghana cedi is divided into one hundred pesewas (Gp). The current Ghanaian Cedi is the fourth and only legal tender in the country.

The exchange rate of 1 Cedi to Naira is not too good and this shows the weakness of the Naira in the international foreign exchange market. Though this doesn’t naturally make the Cedi stronger than the Naira. In foreign exchange the bigger number exchanged with a smaller number doesn’t mean the bigger number is weaker than the currency with a smaller number. First of all the Ghanaian Cedi has been reviewed over the years and the Bank of Ghana has been removing zeros from the back of the currency to make the figures smaller. This is the fourth Ghanaian Cedi so every unit of this Cedi has some invisible Zeros at its back. Anytime inflation levels rise in the country and the exchange rate of the Cedi becomes more embarrassingly high against other foreign currencies, the Bank of Ghana would simply withdraw the Cedi and roll out a new Cedi. This is something similar to what the former Central Bank Of Nigeria Governor Charles Soludo had advised during his time. What really matters in the Foreign currency exchange market is the purchasing power behind each currency. For example, 1 Cedi is exchanged for 30 Japanese Yen but you cannot obviously say that means the Cedi is stronger than the Yen as the Yen obviously has a stronger purchasing power.
