COMMENTS
The 1919 Type 3 Square Penny is a great rarity with perhaps fifteen examples available to collectors. To put that figure into perspective a buyer will wait at least twelve to eighteen months for an example to come onto the market. Acquired in 1995 by a Melbourne collector, this coin has been stored in a bank vault since the day it was bought and is superb for quality.

Enquire Now

The Type 3 is the most popular choice of collectors seeking a 1919 Square Penny. One of the prime reasons for its popularity is its unique design.

No other square penny in the series shares the style of kookaburra and the very modern, stylish lettering of ‘one penny’. And it’s the design difference that separates it from the rest.

Technical comments: Four different designs were tested in 1919 and they are referenced as the Type 3, 4, 5 and 6.
