The Birmingham Assay Office has launched its rainbow logo mark to be applied as an optional mark alongside the hallmark and date letter for 2020 to raise money for the NHS.
The rainbow logo mark will be available for a limited period from the 1 July until December 2020.
The mark depicts the iconic Rainbow symbol that has become synonymous during the current pandemic. The mark will be applied with the date letter “V” in combination with a statutory hallmark and can be lasered on gold, silver, platinum or palladium.
It can also be applied as a standalone logo on non-precious metal articles.
Birmingham Assay Office said at the beginning of the pandemic, rainbows started to appear in the windows of homes all over the UK spreading hope amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
Doug Henry, CEO and Assay Master said: “Since the beginning of the pandemic, we have been developing an idea which enabled us to say ‘thank you to the NHS’ and also to raise much needed funds for the NHS charities.
“The rainbow seemed to be the obvious choice, and the addition of the heart to symbolise love, loss and hope during the pandemic.”
