The cedi sign should be of the size of the dollar sign ($) or the euro sign (EUR). The site you provided is using the cent sign. The Ghana web site uses a better version of the cent sign for the cedi. See http://www.ghanaweb.com/GhanaHomePage/economy/market.prices.php.
We are developing a keyboard for Ghanaian languages and with it we are considering font issues. We think that it would be a good idea to have the currency of the country on the keyboard. Using the cent sign is something Ghanaians have been doing just because it is close to the cedi sign.

I guess you have to show that this site has it wrong:
