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 coin per person.


Can I choose which A-Z of Great Britain 10p I swap?

It’s a lucky dip, so the coin you pick will be the coin you take away with you. Due to how popular we expect the event to be, I’m afraid we will be unable to offer specific A-Z 10p coin designs.


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!

The A-Z of Great Britain 10p coins

26 new UK commemorative 10p coins are being released into circulation…TODAY! 

We get excited when 1 new coin is announced, so imagine the scenes at Change Checker HQ when The Royal Mint announced that they would be releasing 26 (yes 26!!) brand new commemorative 10p coins!

The coins will each feature a different letter from A-Z and each letter will celebrate a different Great British icon.

Will we find the A-Z 10p coins in our change?

The circulating coins will be distributed through The Post Office network from the first week of March.  They will be distributing the coins through normal transactions so you’ll be able to find these coins in your change throughout the month.  It is unlikely that most Post Offices will be willing to simply swap a 10p coin.

The Royal Mint will also release additional coins in relevant locations across the UK throughout 2018.

How many coins are being made?

Initially, more than 2.6 million circulating 10p coins have been struck across the 26 designs and more coins will continue to be struck throughout the year to meet the demand from The Post Office, banks and cash centres.

How scarce are the A-Z 10p coins?

We expect these coins to be very collectible. Take a look at past history and you’ll see that over 75% of the 2012 Olympic 50p coins have now been taken out of circulation.

With more coins to be released, and some letters likely to be more popular than others, it’s impossible to determine an accurate scarcity for these coins at the moment.

We will release the first A-Z of Great Britain 10p Scarcity Index early April when we have collected vital information from our web app and Swap Centre.

Scarcity Index updates will continue to be released throughout the year to ensure you have access to the most accurate scarcity ratings for your 10p coins.

Who designed the A-Z 10p coins?

The coin designs were created by a whole team of people, including Royal Mint designers. Each design had to be approved by Her Majesty The Queen.

Can I collect and swap these coins online?

Yes.  You can find, collect and swap your coins online with the free Change Checker web app:
