Since the year 1300, hallmarking for silver became law in England, this was brought in by Edward the 2nd, at that time silver was the currency standard in England and a £1 sterling had the equivalent value of 1 pound in weight of silver. Values have changed since then but hallmarking hasn’t, it is still the law of the land that silver items must be hallmarked.
Hallmarks denote where, when and who made the silver or gold item. There are usually four marks; The Lion Rampant – denoting it’s made in England, a town symbol, ie anchor or crown, and a letter to denote the manufacture date and the fourth will be the maker’s mark. You can find out more about these marks at www.silvermakersmarks.co.uk
Please be aware that when you sell silver, as with gold, prices fluctuate on a day-to-day basis and we pay the maximum we can as calculated on the London fixing.
