I will present the construction of the graph coherent states in loop quantum gravity. The realization of these coherent states is based on the notion of graph change, as for instance the one induced by the loop quantum dynamics for Yang-Mills and gravity theories. Using a Fock-like canonical structure, these states take the form of an infinite superposition of basis network states with different graphs. I will also discuss some generic properties of these graph coherent states and conclude with comments on certain extensions of the proposed construction and other avenues to explore.
