Ghana broke away from the British West African pound, which was the currency of the British colonies in the area, after independence. The Ghanaian pound was the new republic’s first independent currency (1958-1965). Ghana left the British colonial monetary system in 1965 and switched to the universally accepted decimal system. In place of the old British pound scheme, the African term Cedi (1965-1967) was adopted. In July 1965, Ghana’s first President, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, replaced the Ghanaian pounds, shillings, and pence with Cedi notes and Pesewa coins. The cedi featured the President’s portrait and was worth eight shillings and four pence (8s 4d), or one hundred old pence, making one pesewa equal to one penny.
The new leaders decided to strip Nkrumah’s face from banknotes after the February 1966 military coup. The “modern cedi” (1967–2007) was worth 1.2 cedis at the time of its launch, making it equivalent to half a pound sterling (or ten shillings sterling). The new cedi has been devalued by decades of high inflation, to the point that the largest of the “new cedi” banknotes, the 20,000 note, had a value of around US$2 in 2007. In 2007, the new cedi was progressively phased out in favour of the “Ghana cedi” at a 1:10,000 exchange rate. The Ghana cedi became the highest-denominated currency unit issued in Africa after four digits were removed. When the currency was redenominated, it fell to around 20% of its original buying power.
