All you need to know about the Commemorative Gold Coins.
The Asantehene Commemorative Gold Coins is a fitting memorial in honour of His Majesty Otumfuo Osei Tutu II for the significant role he played in restoring peace to our brothers, the Dagbon Kingdom in the Northern Region of Ghana after decades of protracted Chieftaincy crisis between members of one royal household.
It’s also acknowledged Otumfuo’s role as a restraining influence that has manifested in almost every election cycle in Ghana. That influence, additionally, has ensured peaceful elections, culminating in seamless transitions in governments, especially when power changed hands between the two dominant political parties in Ghana.
The face of the Gold Coin bears the image of His Majesty, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, with the Adinkra symbols “Bi Nka Bi” on the left side and “Mpatapo,” on the right which symbolizes peace, harmony, and reconciliation.
The reverse of the Gold Coin bears the image of the Golden Stool of Asanteman also known as “Sikadwa Kofi.” the most prized possession of the Asante Kingdom and symbolizes the soul of the Asante people, which was commanded from the Heavens by the High Priest, Okomfo Anokye and landed on the lap of the first Asante King, Otumfuo Osei Tutu I.
The Gold Coin will be 99.99% (24 karats) fine gold with a diameter of 37.00 mm and weigh 31.104 grams.
Because the coin is made up of gold, the investment in the coin goes up when gold prices go up. Remember also that gold serves as a hedge against inflation. Buying this coin is a form of long-term investment approved by the Bank of Ghana and powered by EON3 Group.
