The UK’s Assay Offices have designed a new commemorative hallmark in recognition of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in 2012.
Commemorative hallmarks don’t come along very often. In fact, there have only been four since the Silver Jubilee of George V and Queen Mary in 1935. The first was released in 1953 for the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. This was followed in 1977 with Queen’s
Silver Jubilee and then in 2002 for the Golden Jubilee. The only other commemorative mark in this 75 year period was the Millennium mark of 2000.
We have selected a number of our most popular gifts for hallmarking with this special mark. These are being delivered and added to the collection over the next few weeks. Follow the link below to see the current collection:
A Christening gift is a lasting memento of an important rite of passage in a child’s life. What better way to recognise the date than with a silver gift carrying a hallmark of this special year.
