A Day at the Races!

A Day at the Races

The Assay Office Managers recently enjoyed an 'away day' spent at the St Leger horse racing at Doncaster.

Ashley Carson, Assay Master said "The day offered a great opportunity to see how all the Team Leaders left at base performed without the presence of their Managers and I was delighted to learn that the business continued to perform perfectly without any issues. The same could not be said for a few of the managers the following day!"


The Sheffield Assay Office was established in 1773, under an Act of Parliament and today the company assays and hallmarks the precious metals - silver, gold, platinum and palladium. Sheffield Assay Office is one of only four UK assay offices who all work to uphold the Hallmarking Act of 1973 and continue to ensure consumer protection for customers purchasing precious metals.
