At Change Checker HQ we are bursting with excitement, as we can now announce that our Jeremy Fisher 50p Coin Swap is officially open!
Following the buzz of the Beatrix Potter coins, we’ve made collecting the series a little easier by offering you the chance to add this fantastic Beatrix Potter coin to your collection with a fair and simple 50p for 50p swap!
The 2017 Jeremy Fisher 50p is the latest coin in the Beatrix Potter series to be released into circulation and, as you know, all too often the newest coins can often be the trickiest to get hold of…
But don’t despair, because we have managed to get our hands on 10,000 Jeremy Fisher 50p’s and we’re going to swap them ALL with Change Checkers.
As one of the most highly anticipated coin releases we’ve had, this swap is set to be one of busiest ever! So if you want to secure this coin, you’ll have to act fast!
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.

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.
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.
Following the resounding success of Change Checker’s Great Commonwealth Games 50p Swap (see the feedback on Twitter here) during which we swapped well over 6,000 coins, we are pleased to introduce the First World War £2 Coin Swap – offering collectors the chance to own the very latest commemorative coin before it has even entered circulation!
The 2014 First World War £2 is the most highly anticipated circulation coin in recent memory. With Lord Kitchener’s iconic call to arms adorning the reverse, it is set to be one of the most collectable coins for years to come.
We know that all too often the newest coins can be the trickiest to get hold of, but our philosophy is to offer keen collectors the unique chance to own them in the fairest way possible – by swapping with us on a like for like basis.
If you are new to Change Checker or new to our swapping process, here is how it works;
Choose the £2 coin(s) you would like to swap. This can be any commemorative design from the last 15 years and you can swap up to a maximum of FIVE coins with us. Bear in mind we are only swapping commemorative designs not the definitive ‘Technology’ £2.
It’s as easy as that!
Please also remember to obtain proof of postage from the Post Office – this will help us out with any customer service queries if they arise.
