New Diamond Jubilee Hallmark
December 6, 2011
The creation of a celebratory Diamond Jubilee Hallmark follows a tradition established in the twentieth century when commemorative hallmarks recognised the Silver Jubilee of George and Mary in 1935, the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953, her Silver Jubilee in 1977 and Golden Jubilee in 2002. A special commemorative hallmark has been approved to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II, only the second British Monarch to serve for 60 years. This optional mark depicts a young Queen Elizabeth wearing an oversized crown in a diamond shaped surround.
This mark will be appearing on future BUNNEY products while it is in service.
