Change Checker LIVE Coronation 50p Swap! Join us at the New Forest Show…

In celebration of King Charles III’s Coronation this year, the UK’s FIRST EVER Coronation 50p has been issued, and we’ll be swapping it at the New Forest Show!

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 next Change Checker Live Event.

Join us at the New Forest & Hampshire County Show from Tuesday 25th to Thursday 27th July and bring along ANY UK 50p coin to swap for the 2023 King Charles III 50p with the special Crowned obverse!

The New Forest & Hampshire County Show

The event is an annual three day agricultural show held near Brockenhurst in Hampshire. Whilst show jumping is a major feature, several other livestock competitions also take place. Visitors can enjoy a wander around the trade stands as well as sample some local food and drink.

The show is rated among the top ten agricultural shows in the country and a visit from Queen Elizabeth II and the Duke of Edinburgh in 2012 boosted its profile to new heights. Considering the show’s popularity and rich heritage, we simple had to make it the destination for our next coin swap.

Swap ANY 50p coin for the 2023 Coronation 50p

We’ll be bringing a limited number of 2023 Coronation 50ps to the show each day to be swapped for ANY 50p coin. This means that you can get your hands on the Coronation 50p with the special crowned obverse for face value!

Swaps will be limited to one per person on a first come first served basis, whilst stocks last.

    That sounds great for those attending the show, but at over £20 a ticket it is cheaper to order one from you, the mint or off Ebay.

      Hi Shaun, hopefully you can catch one of our coin swaps another time. Keep an eye out for details!
