An update on the Platinum Jubilee Mark

 

 

 

The sudden death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II has been a shock to all of us.  On the day of her death, along with the other Assay Offices, we determined that the additional celebratory jubilee mark should be withdrawn as a mark of respect coincident with the commencement of a period of national mourning.  Since that time the Assay Offices have continued to monitor the situation, cognisant of the ground swell of emotion from the public.  Following intra office discussions, the UK Assay Offices have agreed the following statement: 
 
"Over the course of the last week the four Assay Offices of the UK have received a huge number of requests from the trade and the public in support of continuing the application of the Platinum Jubilee commemorative mark.
 
After consultation with the King's Assay Master, the four Assay Offices of the UK are pleased to announce that from Tuesday 20th of September the Platinum Jubilee Mark will be made available again. The mark will remain available until the end of 2022, as originally scheduled."
