Change Checker LIVE Coronation 50p Swap! Join us at the Royal International Air Tattoo…

In celebration of King Charles III’s Coronation this year, the UK’s FIRST EVER Coronation 50p has been issued.

We know that this coin will be entering circulation later in 2023, but a special Crowned Portrait obverse design has been issued just for collectors – and we want to give you the chance to own one for face value!

This version of the coin won’t be found in your change, but you can add it to your collection by swapping an old 50p for the brand new one when you join us at our latest Change Checker Live Event.

Join us at the Royal International Air Tattoo from Friday 14th to Sunday 16th July and bring along ANY UK 50p coin to swap for the 2023 King Charles III 50p with the special Crowned obverse!

The event takes place at RAF Fairford, where thrilling sights and sounds of several hundred aircraft of all shapes and sizes, from all eras and countries of the world, gather for this unique adrenalin-fuelled occasion.

With an event as patriotic as this, we simply had to bring along this special version of the Coronation 50p for collectors to get their hands on!

We’ll be taking 1,000 coins with us to swap each day and swaps will be limited to one per person on a first come first served basis, whilst stocks last.

Come and see us to swap your 50ps!

Known as the world’s largest military air show, the Royal International Air Tattoo sees crowds flock annually to the Cotswolds to experience the thrill of the show.

We’ll be swapping 50ps with collectors across all three days, so be sure to come and say hello! You can find us at the Village Green stalls near the main runway.

Can’t attend this event?

Don’t worry! We’ll also be at the New Forest & Hampshire County Show from Tuesday 25th July to Thursday 27th July swapping the new King Charles III Coronation 50p!
