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!

Here’s how the swapping process works:

1) Choose THREE commemorative 50p coins that you would like to swap – these must be of a reasonable quality that you’d be happy to have in your collection
2) Complete our quick online form – we will email you a copy of this form to print out and send with your coins
3) Send us your completed form and 50p coin(s) (max. 3) in the post (remember to get proof of posting)
4) You’ll receive your 2017 Jeremy Fisher 50p(s) within 10 working days of posting your coins to us

It’s as easy as that!

Remember, only commemorative 50p coins can be swapped – the shield 50p and Britannia 50p cannot be accepted. Please also remember to obtain proof of postage from the Post Office – this will help us with any customer service queries should they arise.

Why does everyone want the new Kitchener £2?

Since its release into general circulation a few weeks ago, the new First World War £2 has really caused a stir amongst coin collectors. And it is easy to see why.

The famous ‘Your Country Needs You’ poster featuring Lord Kitchener was originally used during the First World War campaign for enlistment.  The enduring image of Kitchener’s pointing finger, stern face and distinguished moustache has grown to become a symbol of wartime Britain and of national pride and it is rare to see such an iconic design on a circulation coin.

The familiarity of the image poses a problem for collectors; it is undoubtedly a stand-out design and one which is likely to be taken out of circulation by both collectors and the general public alike.

When you consider that it is also the very first coin to be issued as part of the Royal Mint’s five year programme commemorating the the First World War, the chances of finding one in your change appear to be slim.

The new Kitchener £2 has been selling on eBay for over 3 times its face value

A quick look on eBay will tell you everything you need to know about the popularity of the Kitchener £2, which has been exchanging hands for in excess of three times its face value. Whilst the final mintage will remain unknown for some time, the consensus is that this will certainly be one to keep for years to come.
