2024 date letter

Happy New Year! 🎉

The date letter for 2024 is a lower case z.

A non-compulsory mark, the date letter changes annually on 1 January. The font, case, and shield shape all change so each can only indicate one specific year.

Learn about the evolution of the hallmark and the component marks in the article ‘Hallmark as Hero’ by Goldsmiths’ Company Deputy Librarian.
