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.

Since the year 2016 began, we have experienced a series of random fluctuations in prices both in the commodity and financial markets. This has been a global phenomenon and Africa as a continent was not let out of the ongoing global economy shake-up.

Gold has been a great blessing for Africa in the last decade. The recent ‘gold rush’, spurred from the rally in the gold price from below $700 per ounce to an all time high of over $1,900 per ounce, has had a very positive socio-economic impact on Africa’s ‘gold nations’. South Africa, Ghana, Tanzania and Sudan are amongst the top 20 biggest gold producers in the world. These countries’ economies have benefitted greatly from mining and exporting the precious metal over the last decade.

Every middle class African now has the opportunity to benefit from an increase in the value of gold. They can do so by purchasing gold as a financial investment.
