Change Checker LIVE Events are BACK! The Road to the Platinum Jubilee…
In celebration of Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee in 2022, we’ve seen some incredible coin issues mark the occasion.
We even recently heard the very exciting news that an initial 1.3 million Platinum Jubilee 50p coins will enter circulation in the UK on the 7th of February!
To continue the celebrations, Change Checker has been taking the Platinum Jubilee 50p, with that very special obverse, on a tour of the UK.
We’re delighted to announce we’re heading to Newcastle AND Glasgow on our next stop of our tour!
Join us on Thursday 5th May from 9am – 9pm at the Metrocentre in Newcastle and Saturday 7th May from 9am – 6pm at Buchanan Galleries, Glasgow. We’re giving collectors the chance to swap ANY UK 50p coin for the coin of a lifetime, in Brilliant Uncirculated quality.
This version of the Platinum Jubilee 50p won’t be entering circulation, so it’s a great chance to get your hands on it in superior quality for just face value!
We’ll be taking 1,952 coins with us to swap on the day, in tribute to Her Majesty’s Coronation anniversary! Swaps will be limited to one per person whilst stocks last and it will be a strict first come first served basis.
We’ve already visited Oxford and Sheffield on our tour of the UK and there will be other occasions and locations for you to swap your coins, on the countdown to the Platinum Jubilee weekend in June!
On Thursday 5th May you can find us on the lower level of the Metrocentre, just outside Timpson and Market Cross Jewellers, as highlighted by the pink arrow above.
Metrocentre is located just off the A1, following signs for Newcastle and Gateshead. If travelling via car, you can use the Sat Nav reference: NE11 9YG to guide you.
The centre is also on the national rail network and has its own train station.
Buchanan Galleries, Glasgow
On Saturday 7th May you can find us on the ground floor of Buchanan Galleries in the North Atrium. We’ll be located just outside John Lewis, as highlighted above with a pink dot.
Buchanan Galleries is located in the heart of Glasgow city centre, on the corner of Buchanan Street and Sauchiehall Street.
If you’re joining us by car, use G2 3NW as your destination and enter the car park from either Killermont Street or Cathedral Street.
Being in the city centre, it’s very handy to reach via public transport. Buchanan Galleries is located next to Queen Street train station, Buchanan Street subway station and Buchanan bus station. Glasgow Central train station is also just 5 minutes’ walk away.
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.
Can I reserve a coin before I arrive?
To ensure it is a fair swap event for everyone, we do not offer reservations of coins. It is a strictly first come first served basis.
We look forward to seeing you there!
Secure the 2022 UK Platinum Jubilee 50p in Brilliant Uncirculated quality!
Whilst we hope you’re excited to swap your 50p coin for the brand new Platinum Jubilee 50p at one of our live swap events, if you want to ensure this coin is guaranteed for your collection, you can do so for JUST £4.99 (+p&p) >>
Be sure you don’t miss out!

Do you give them to anyone who wanders into the Shopping Centre with 50p, or do you have a rule for CC’s only, please?
Whilst we’ll try our best to give as many Change Checkers the chance to get their hands on the coin at our live swap event and with plenty of notice, we’d like to remind everyone that the coins will be available on a first come first serve basis, so if shoppers come up to our stall we will give them the same opportunity. We’ll be giving you updates through the day on how our swaps are going 🙂
When will you publish other locations you plan to visit – trying to work out whether to go to Oxford or whether it will come closer to me (Reading, Berks).
We’ll try to hit as many corners of the country as possible – with Oxford being our most central location.

We try to cover as many areas of the country when planning our live events. We’ve done so many fun ones in the past, in different cities and towns across the UK. We’ll of course try and make the locations of our Platinum Jubilee 50p Tour as fair as possible for as many people as possible to be able to attend. We’ll update Change Checkers as soon as possible with the next stops on our tour.
Yes a Cornwall stage in the tour would be great!
