Hallmarking by Edinburgh Assay Office
Any product bought requiring Hallmarking (if not in stock) will be hand poured as soon as possible and sent to be hallmarked with the next batch.
This process can take up to 3 weeks, your item/s will then be shipped, please allow up to 4 weeks from order to delivery. The time delay is with the Hallmarking at the Assay office and out of my hands once its with them. The work is often carried out quicker than this, but i have to allow extra time in case of delays.
There is a fast track option for those in a hurry but there is a significant price increase (hallmarkers, not ours), should it be needed urgently.
Orders will be shipped when all pieces are available to complete the order.
We will keep you updated on all stages of the progress of your order.
Is hand poured silver worth more?
Poured bars usually cost more than pressed bars for two reasons. One being that they are generally larger and the second being that they often require a human to physically pour the metal. … If a bar is considered a collectors’ item, prices are often higher than the metal’s melt value.
Over time, hand-poured silver will be worth way more than minted silver. Most bars are worth up to twice as much when they’re old as opposed to when they are new. The dull finish and softer edges increase the aesthetic appeal of hand-poured bars to some buyers.
