What is an ‘assay’?

An assay is a test and sign of proof of the gold’s quality. The UK has assay offices in London, Sheffield, Birmingham and Edinburgh – each assay office marks its gold with a different sign called a ‘Hallmark’. Assaying in England dates back to 1300 when Edward I ordered the quality of precious metals be tested.
