Ghana will introduce new GHS5 currency note: The Bank of Ghana (BoG) has announced that it will be issuing a new 5 Ghana Cedis note which will have a portrait of Dr James Kwegyir Aggrey – a missionary and a teacher in the Gold Coast, who lived from October 18, 1875, to July 30, 1927. According to Dr Abdul Nashiru Issahaku, the Governor of the BoG, the new GHS5 note will be used alongside the old GHS5 note. He mentioned that the decision is being made as an effort to celebrate Dr James Kwegyir Aggrey for his unprecedented contribution towards education and the development of the country. The new GHS5 note has new durable security features which can be easily identified by the public and comes with additional internationally acceptable security features which are sensitive to touch to aid the visually challenged in identifying the new note. The new note is also a move to celebrate 60 years of central banking in Ghana since it began in 1957 following the country’s independence.
