Fond Farewell to British Hallmarking Council Secretary, Sue Green

This month the British Hallmarking Council said a fond farewell to Secretary, Sue Green.

Sue was appointed as Secretary to the British Hallmarking Council in 2018 and has made a tremendous impact on the running of the organisation.

The incoming Secretary will be Louise Chambers, and everyone here at Sheffield Assay Office would like to extend her a very warm welcome.

Pictured above are (left to right) the four Assay Masters of the UK, Doug Henry (Birmingham Assay Office), Scott Walter (Edinburgh Assay Office), Sue Green, Ashley Carson (Sheffield Assay Office) and Will Evans (London Assay Office) presenting Sue with a small token of their appreciation.

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.
