The coin features a noticeable rough edge and a latent picture that appears below the Scale of Justice on the back in the shape of a rectangle.
When tilted, the latent picture transforms from a star that is radiating to a symbol for the One Ghana Cedi that is sandwiched between two stars.
Up until the existing coin is gradually removed, the upgraded and existing GHS1 coils will co-circulate.
