This banknote apparently dates from 1965. It is possible that the
typographic convention has changed since then. There are pictures of the
current banknotes from the Bank of Ghana's official website at
http://www.bog.gov.gh/aboutus/currency.htm, but they don't appear to
have any printed symbols. Nor do the recent coins pictured at
http://www.wbcc.fsnet.co.uk/af-gha.htm. Note that the name "cedi" is not
a variant of "cent" but means "cowrie".
I wonder if Kyekyeku is finding it rather offensive that all we
westerners are claiming to know better than he does what the cedi sign
looks like. He says it is different from a cent sign. Let's stop
speculating that he might be wrong and wait for him to provide evidence
that he is correct.
