The King Charles III coronation hallmark has been announced.

You know how excited I get about hallmarks!  I’m delighted today that the Assay Offices of the UK announced a new commemorative  hallmark which has been designed to celebrate the coronation of our King Charles III.

The hallmark is oval in shape and depicts King Charles III in profile.  The approved hallmark is based on a medal by fellow of the Royal British Society of Sculptors, Ian Rank-Broadley.  It uses artwork supplied by Thomas Fattorini who designed the Platinum Jubilee Hallmark .
