Money in Ghana

What is a nickel worth in Ghana?

my paper bills of 20 cedi

worth about 3.5 dollars

my soup was 8 dollars

less than 50 cedi

it was so good with coconut milk & carrot 

inflation has rendered some coin useless 

like cowry shells 


dVerse prompt to write a quadrille with the word “nick” —arrived in Ghana today.

  1. Loving the cultural aspects of this! And yes….some coins have become obsolete…I think of our old tokens for the Boston subway….now made into bracelets or offered in a dusty dish in antique shops. No monetary value at all.
