London has been marking Gold with various leopards heads since 1478, with a date letter. There has been an Incorporation of Goldsmiths in Edinburgh since the 1490s. The Edinburgh mark changed in 1681. Imported gold and silver is marked with its purity, the design of this mark will tell you when it was imported. Auctioneers and jewellers will describe metal without a purity and or hallmark as "white" or "yellow" coloured metal, unless it's marked as "plated". Gold can be tested with acid. If you send an item to an assay office to check for purity, they will mark it with the letter of the year you send it regardless of when the item was made. Hallmarking Act 1973.
