We’ll educate Ghanaians on new cedi notes in the coming days – BoG

The Central Bank has introduced GH¢100 and GH¢200 notes as additions to the country’s currency denomination mix.

Dr. Addison said there will be a 2 cedis coin, as well as 100 cedis and 200 cedis notes.

The BoG boss further revealed that his outfit will soon embark on a nationwide campaign to educate the public on the new currency notes.

"In the coming days, the Bank of Ghana will embark on a nationwide campaign to educate the general public on the new denominations,” Dr. Addison said.

“I entreat every Ghanaian to study these new denominations carefully and be familiar with the main features to facilitate the detection of fake currency notes. The need to properly handle our banknotes is still of significant importance and we must strive to keep them clean at all times in line with the Bank’s Clean Note Policy.”

Meanwhile, Ghanaians on social media have criticised the decision to introduce new denominations.
