A response to the curiosity of individuals and groups who still wonders why Ghana, the beautiful and amazing country on the coast of West Africa and south of the Sahara, was named the "GOLD COAST" due to its huge depth of precious stones, out of all the countries of the world by the first European explorers (the Portuguese) to have arrived on this natural resources rich country at the turn of the 15th century.
