This Square Penny is the perfect package. Superb quality and extreme rarity, the coin features the exceptionally scarce design type 11 kookaburra. In a career that spans more than forty years I would have handled perhaps SIX Type 11 Square Pennies.
Furthermore it is offered at a price that won’t break the bank. The coin offers excellent buying value.
We are always excited by the opportunity of acquiring a Square Penny. Alongside the 1930 Penny, the Square Penny is one of Australia’s most popular coin rarities.
For the buyer considering the purchase of a 1921 Square Penny there is the option of two designs.
The Type 11 (offered here) depicts a sleek kookaburra. The other designated the Type 12 shows an extremely plump, well fed bird.
The Type 11 is the pick of the bunch for it is by far the rarer of the two. Not only the rarer of the two, the Type 11 has far superior quality traits. The surfaces of the Type 11 are proof-like and highly reflective: those of the Type 12 tend to be matte and rather subdued.
The 1921 Square Penny is a rare piece of Australia's coinage history with a unique and distinctive style.
It has also proved to be an exceptional investment.
