Move two adjacent coins, leaving the other pair of adjacent coins untouched. Place them on opposite sides of the unmoved pair, so that they become diagonally opposite corners of the new square.

Using only 12 coins how can you arrange them into 4 rows with four coins in each row?

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.

How many pound coins cover a football pitch?

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.

How do you place coins if I have 10 coins and place it in 5 lines of 4?

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).

Were there any commemorative square Australian pennies issued?

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.
