By 1921 designs for the new square nickel composed Half Penny had already been heavily developed. It was a substantial
struggle for the coin authorities to find a Kookaburra design that adequately depicted the noble animal. When finally happy
the issue shifted to the obverse portrait which struggled to fit within
the small coin without feeling cramped. Despite bills being drafted to introduce the new coins the designs were never full
accepted and the project was suspended and eventually discarded.
(Barrier Miner, 1920)
