The assay offices of the UK have revealed the hallmark that will commemorate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
The mark will be available for request from 1 November 2021 and has been designed by Thomas Fattorini.
This comes as the Queen is set to become the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee, 70 years of service, having acceded to the throne in 1952.
The mark was sanctioned by the British Hallmarking Council to honour the occasion.
The mark, which depicts an orb, can be applied to precious metals alongside a hallmark by any of the four UK assay offices.
A spokesperson for the Assay Offices of the UK said: “The UK Assay Offices have a long tradition of capturing special occasions with the creation of commemorative marks.
“Not only does it provide the trade with an additional narrative for the products that carry the mark, but it also brings the importance of the hallmark into focus with the jewellery and silver buying consumer.”
Until the end of 2021, the mark can be applied to a hallmark without a date letter.
Throughout all of 2022 the commemorative component mark can be applied along
with the new year date letter.
