The new commemorative GHS5 note becomes legal tender on Saturday, 4 March as part of Ghana’s 60th anniversary celebration.
The bill comes with unique security features. It has already been distributed to banks across the country and will be released to citizens on Tuesday, March 7.
The bill has late Gold Coast educationist and missionary Dr James Kwegyir Aggrey’s picture embossed on it.
It also has tactile marks to help the visually impaired along with an intaglio portrait.
