The mood of the nation had changed after World War I. A laughing kookaburra design and the depiction of the monarch without a crown were two of the elements of the new coinage that while highly contentious and provocative, the Government hoped would be accepted, caught up in the wave of nationalism that was sweeping the nation post World War I.
Points to note with this 1921 Square Halfpenny.
