Arrange them in the shape of a square with 4 on the left, 4 on the right, 4 across the top, and 4 across the bottom. The coin in each corner counts as a member of two edges. Each edge has 4 coins in it, and there are a total of 12 coins all around the square.

A pound coin is 22½ mm diameter, while a football pitch is approximately 100 x 40 metres, so 4000 square metres. Each coin fits in a 22½ mm square, which is an area of 0.0225 x 0.0225 square metres. That is .0005 square metres. The ratio of the areas is 4000 / .0005 so that football pitch would take 7.9 million pound coins.

Many countries use cents as a minor currency unit and their 50 cent coins are not all the same size. Since you have not bothered to share that crucial bit of information, I cannot provide a more useful answer.

You would lay out a five-pointed star, with a coin at each of the five points and each of the five inner angles (another way to think of it is putting coins at the five corners of a large pentagon as well as at the five corners of a smaller pentagon which is twisted 180 degrees and placed in the cented of the larger pentagon).

This question is not very specific and, therefore, the answer is going to be a bit creative (hope you don't mind!). Make a normal square with 9 coins (3 x 3) and then stack the left over coins however you like on the 9 coins! :-)

Japanese coins do not have square holes. The coin you have is probably a chinese coin.

The short answer is no, none were released into circulation. In 1919, the Australian Government considered replacing the large round bronze Halfpenny and Penny with smaller and lighter coins. The coins were intended to be normal general circulation coins rather than commemortives. The proposed designs were all square with rounded corners and were to be made from nickel. They featured various busts of King George V on the obverse and various kookaburra designs on the reverse. The two proposed square Halfpenny designs were 14mm in diameter and weighed 1.91 or 1.97 grams compared to the bronze Halfpenny of 25.5mm and 5.67 grams. The eleven proposed square Penny designs were 18mm in diameter and weighed 3.79 to 4.67 grams compared to the bronze Penny of 30.8mm and 9.45 grams. The coins are dated 1919, 1920 or 1921. There was a limited quantity minted and they were handed around to various government officials and others for assessment, but not all were returned. Apparently, they were not well received by those who did the assessing, and of course, they were unsuitable for slot machines. They are quite valuable if you are fortunate enough to have one.
