Australian 1921 Square Penny

Recommended Posts


Hopefully I get the link working this time...

Australian square penny

An Australian 1921 cupro-nickel pattern penny is coming up for auction at Spink. There's lots of strong coins in the auction and, as its a world sale, something for everyone. Read the preview then take a look for yourselves.

Personally, I can't believe they didn't see and issue with a square coin before there were any examples struck. Nice coin though and an interesting collecting area.

cool, i'm guessing they would use similar sized planchets as ceylon and malaya

don't like the design though :(

Yeah, they were 18mm like the Ceylon 5c.

Some of them had not so good obverses either:
