​That link also includes round coins with square holes (e.g. Chinese cash)...

In any case the list above seems to be missing a few; just from the top of my head:
Straits Settlements 1/2 cent 1932
Straits Settlements 1 cent 1919-26
Malaya 1/2 cent 1940
Malaya 1 cent 1939-45
Transistria 3 Roubles 2014
+Lots of notgeld issues
Are you a purist, or do you include diamonds with your squares?

My only three square coins ...

I got 14 by entering the shape as square and an additional 25 by entering the shape as 4-sided. I also got 21 by entering the shape as quadrangular.
I checked the pages for the square coins that I have and discovered the following shape descriptions for a square coin.

quadrangular
quadrangular (4-sided)
quadrangular (4-sided, rotated on edge)
quadrangular (4-sided, rounded)
rounded quadrangonal (4-sided)
square with rounded corners
square with rounded edges
square (irregular)
square/quadrangular (4-sided with rounded edges, rotated on edge)
square/quadrangular (4-sided) with rounded corners
square/quadrangular (4-sided) with cut corners

I would bet this same thing occurs with other shapes. Maybe the technical data section on the coin sheet should have a finite selection of shapes in a drop down list.

​These coins are fine and very fine.

For the German & Austrian States stuff, you have to look for "klippe" .
I have 2 from Salzburg, a 1/4 and a 1/9 Taler, as often, mounted as jewels with a ring:

You have forgotten to add the following coin into the list.
Colombia 2,000 Pesos. 1975 KM#262. 300 years of Medellin
Mintage, 4,000



Should also add the Jersey £1. KM#51
I'm just a collector of coins, not a slave to it, unless I am in a coin shop.
