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.
