Akan gold weights

Akan gold weight in the shape of a cannon. The Akan are a group of related peoples who live in central and southern Ghana and the eastern part of the Ivory Coast. From the late 14th century, when they imported the technique of metal casting from North Africa, the Akan people of central and southern Ghana developed a system of weights for measuring gold dust, which was their main currency.
