Hallmarking Figures and Trends July to September 2012

15 Oct 2012

This table depicts the amount of precious metal articles being submitted for hallmarking in the months of July to September 2012, by all four UK Assay Offices including the percentage increase or decrease when compared to Quarter 3 2011.

As precious metals prices are on the increase again it isn't really a surprise that hallmarking is again on the decrease as consumers disposable income reduces.
