Assay Office Remaining Closed

We are working on reopening as soon as it is safe to do so.  We feel that the current situation in London doesn’t permit us to operate safely for our customers & staff so we will remain closed until at least 8 May 2020.   

We are reviewing our situation regularly with a view to re-opening the Assay Office at the earliest safe opportunity and with the provision of PPE for staff. 

We will update this notice again by 7 May 2020.

A Message from The Deputy Warden of The Goldsmiths’ Company Assay Office 07.04.20

HM The Queen's speech struck a chord with me – I am proud of how our teams at the Assay Office met the mounting challenges of taking in work to be assayed and hallmarked, and I am satisfied that our decision to stay closed is the best course of action, and one of integrity. As a London company with five sites across the Capital, I want to make sure our teams avoid public transport, can stay safe and stay at home. This is as much for their safety as it is for yours, our valued customers.
