Ghana - 2000 Cedis 2003 - Pick 33
The cedi is the unit of currency of Ghana. One cedi is divided into one hundred pesewas. The actual cedi was introduced on July 3, 2007, and was equal to 10,000 old cedi when redenomination saw four zeros lopped off the value. It was the highest valued currency unit issued by sovereign countries in Africa in 2007.

The word "cedi" is derived from the Akan word for cowry shell. Cowry shells were once used in Ghana as a form of currency.

A number of Ghanaian coins have also been issued in Sika denominations. These are probably best considered as "medallic" coinage, and may have no legal tender status. The word sika means "money".
