We’re delighted to announce the next Change Checker Live Event will be coming to Cardiff!

We’re at St David’s Shopping Centre in Cardiff from 9.30am to 8pm on Wednesday 19th February and we’re bringing the 2019 UK Wallace and Gromit 50p coin to swap with you.

Join us there and swap ANY UK 50p coin for the wonderful Wallace and Gromit 50p coin in Brilliant Uncirculated condition.

These coins won’t be entering circulation, so this is your chance to get your hands on one in superior collector’s quality for just face value.

PLUS, when you attend the event you’ll receive an exclusive voucher to purchase Change Checker goodies on the day.

Please note: Swaps are limited to 1 per person, while stocks last.

St David’ Shopping Centre, Cardiff

Located in one of the UK’s fastest growing cities, St David’s in Cardiff is one of the UK’s premier retail destinations, with a choice of over 180 retailers and over 40 restaurants to enjoy during your visit.

You can find us on the lower level near Watches of Switzerland and Pravins, at the location marked by the red circle on the map below:

Sitting above St David’s is a 2,000 space contemporary 24-hour car parking facility. Disabled parking is located on Level P3 and a second car park of 550 spaces can be found underneath John Lewis.

Situated right in the heart of Cardiff city centre, St David’s is a short walk from Cardiff Central and Queen Street Rail Stations.

It’s easy to get there by car too with excellent links from the A470 and the M4.

If you’re using a sat nav to get there, the postcode you’ll need is CF10 2EN. This will take you to the entrance of the multi storey car park on Mary Ann Street.

St David’s Shopping Centre, Bridge St, Cardiff, CF10 2EF

Can I swap more than one coin?

Such is the popularity of our Live Coin Swaps and to ensure that it is fair for everybody, we’ll be limiting the number of swaps to strictly 1 swap per person.

Will you be doing any more Live Coin Swaps?

That’s the plan!

We will be holding more Live Coin Swaps in the future and the plan is to visit a different area of the country each time, giving as many people as possible the opportunity to attend.

We look forward to seeing you there!


Secure your Wallace and Gromit 50p!

Can’t wait to get your hands on the Wallace and Gromit 50p coin?

    What are your stock levels going to be for this?



    • Rachel Hooper on February 10, 2020 at 8:55 am

      Hi Karen, we’ve based our stock off previous live events to make sure we’ll have enough for a busy day of swapping 🙂 To make sure we have enough coins to go around, swaps are limited to one per person. Thanks, Rachel



  2. Phillip Finney on January 23, 2020 at 5:07 pm

    • Alexandra Siddons on January 27, 2020 at 8:58 am

    Much better than having to buy the coins!! Collected for the last 15yrs and get annoyed that the only way you can keep the collection going is to buy the new coins of the collection wont be complete 🙄🤦‍♀️ this still keeps the fun of collecting going rather than having to constantly buy coins as they are now releasing a new coin monthly or even more frequently!
    Hoping to make it to keep my collection complete 🤞



    • Alexandra Siddons on January 27, 2020 at 8:59 am

      We hope to see you there Angela! 🙂

  11. Peter Embling on January 13, 2020 at 2:13 pm

    If it’s not going into circulation then it’s not a coin. You and the Royal Mint should know this.



  12. Bobby Hughes on January 13, 2020 at 2:04 pm

    Is this to swap a 50p for the Wallace and gromit 50p or is there a chance for swappers to swap with each other?



    • Rachel Hooper on January 13, 2020 at 2:27 pm

      Hi Bobby, this is just to swap the Wallace and Gromit 50p coin with us.



      • Tim Tostevin on January 13, 2020 at 5:10 pm

        Why can we not also swap other coins with each other?



      • Rachel Hooper on January 14, 2020 at 8:19 am

        Hi Tim, you’re welcome to arrange swaps with Change Checkers who attend the event, but we will only have the Wallace and Gromit 50ps to swap with you. Any other swaps will need to be arranged directly between Change Checkers.



  13. Lester on January 13, 2020 at 2:04 pm

    Are you coming to London at all?



    • Rachel Hooper on January 13, 2020 at 2:28 pm

      Hi Lester, we don’t have future dates or venues confirmed yet, but if you’re following our blog and social media we’ll be keeping you up to date when any new events are coming up.
