1991 Ghana 100 Cedis

Do you have a Ghana coin and want to know its value? Leave a comment


Like other coins from other African countries this is the one and only Ghana coin I own. African money, even in coin lots, are less likely to travel out of that continent. Many factors like distance, economics, and more make finding them difficult for cheap or free.

· GHANA · FREEDOM AND JUSTICE (center cocoa beans on plant)
19 -- 100 -- 91 -- CEDIS -- (center shield with lion)
Also like other African coins this one has been demonetized. New money dated 2007 or later is what is in use now. 10,000 old Cedis equals 1 new Cedi so that is about $0.0056436 in U.S. dollars. Again exchange rate value is meaningless compared to metal value which should be about $0.10. Collectors value is where it really wins. Since there was an unknown minted, an unknown recycled, and a short three year run this makes it have a higher value

Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 100 Cedis / Ghana
Year: 1991
Mintage: Unknown
Metal: Bi-Metallic: Brass center, Copper-Nickel ring
Value: $1.75 in Extra-Fine
