I'll start it off with this trio. From left to right: Bangladesh 1973 & '74 5 Poisha, 1961 Malaya and British Borneo 1 Cent, and 1974 Bahamas 15 Cent (Proof}





Note that I'm not making any distinction here between "square" and "diamond" coins, which is dependent solely on the orientation of the markings.

Two coins already posted (too slow). These are my first coin photos with a new system, and first upload of a composite image. Still have much to learn, but I'm getting there!

Not sure if you'll let me call this one square as it technically is an octagon... It is a one Heller from the German City State of Saxe-Hildburghausen from 1788. The obverse shows the crowned arms between two sprays of greenery while the reverse has "HH", the denomination, and the date. It is rather thin and malleable so you can see evidence of prior bends on this coin. The clipping to make the coin this shape was done at the mint.

Oh, I think that's plenty close to the theme here - the "octagonal" shape is really just due to a blunting of the square's corners, although I wouldn't be surprised if the degree to which this clipping was done might also have been variable as the need to adjust weight as well came into play. Very interesting piece, thanks for sharing.
