The design on reverse, which looks like "TiiT" repeated six times is not symmetrical.
What is its significance?
Thank you for calling my attention to it, it is interesting.
The top design has two dots. The other four have one dot, with the two on the left on a different symbol from the two on the right. The ring would have bilateral symmetry if it weren't for the long curve on left side of the top set (and on the same side of each other set of symbols).

Does any one think that it is some sort of Morse code or identification feature for visually challenged?

I was due to contact my contact at the Bank of Ghana to obtain designer information and will include this question. Although I do not think that it is some sort of message, it does indeed look odd.

The Royal Mint has been asked for information on who designed and modelled both sides of the coin. I have also asked for information on the significance of the lines pattern that is repeated 5 times on the reverse of the coin. They will reply to these questions in the third week of June. Whether they will provide all of the information asked for, I do not know.

These questions had previously also been sent to the Bank of Ghana but no reply has so far been received.
