The well-deserved winners have now been selected.
Change Checker of the Year
Jeff Savage has been crowned as the 2023 Change Checker of the Year.
Jeff’s colleague nominated him for Change Checker of the Year saying that he has an impressive coin collection, and his knowledge of past coins is second to none.
He has even given coins to friends, colleagues and family members to keep, inspiring them to start their own collections and encouraging the next generation of collectors.
Junior Change Checker of the Year
Wilf Ross (15) and his brother Hugo (12) have happily accepted the titles of 2023 Junior Change Checkers of the Year.

Hugo and Wilf also said they’ve been talking to their teachers about coins and inspiring them to look out for commemorative issues in their change. Wilf is aiming to collect every commemorative circulating 50p and £2 coin.
