This set is a unique opportunity for one buyer. The set is captivating, each coin individually sensational and handpicked for quality. And yet each coin is different, in their obverse and reverse designs and their toning, which ultimately reflects the diversity of the series. The set of three coins is highly historical and tells the story of the Kookaburra Square Penny. A three-year program conducted at the Melbourne Mint that started in 1919, continued into 1920, and finished in 1921, the aim to produce a uniquely Australian coin.

Australia entered a new era post world war I. A carefree population keen to lessen the ties with Great Britain, establish a strong national identity and forge its own way.

Consideration was given to introducing a new currency, the Kookaburra Square Penny, a unique Australian coin that featured our native bird. It was one of the instruments the Government believed would give us a greater awareness, and appreciation, of all things Australian.

To maximise impact, a new shape was planned with the move from circular to square. And bronze was to be discarded and a new metal taken up, that of cupro-nickel.

The Kookaburra Pennies that remain today are relics of our past, their engaging shape and design stirring up strong collector sentiment. And with such limited numbers available, collector thirst is also driven by their extreme rarity.

Acquiring a single 1919 Kookaburra Square Penny will test a collector's resolve. The waiting time might be several years. A collector will have to stay committed to the task to acquire a 1920 Kookaburra Square Penny for they are extremely rare. The wait may even be longer.

And that's not to make light of the effort required to procure a top quality 1921 Kookaburra Penny.
