British Hallmarking Council invites opinion on Platinum Jubilee marks

The British Hallmarking Council, made up of the four UK Assay Offices - Sheffield, Birmingham, Edinburgh & London - are joining forces with the National Association of Jewellers (NAJ) to run a poll to decide the 2021 Platinum Jubilee hallmark.

The NAJ have issued the following statement saying "The two Platinum Jubilee marks have been created by the British Hallmarking Council (BHC), made up of the four UK Assay Offices, and NAJ members are invited to express their opinion on the marks, as well also run polls with their customers and report back to the Council."

Would you like to have your say? To find out more about the two options and vote for your favourite, visit the NAJ website.

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.
