*Daily Collection Service - Temporary Suspension*

Published: 5th July 2022

Due to major security concerns within the Green Street, East London area, it is with regret that we have found it necessary to temporarily suspend the Collection and Delivery Service until further notice. This is not a decision that was taken lightly, but the security and safety of the drivers is of paramount importance.

Regency, who provide Sheffield Assay Office with our daily collection service, are currently working closely with both the Metropolitan and Thames Valley Police with regards to the current situation.

If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch.

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.
