World Hallmarks Volume 1 strives to clearly explain the hallmarking systems of countries across the globe and, where possible, define this information within the appropriate historical context. The Institute’s initial historical timeline concentrates primarily on the mid 19th century to date. World Hallmarks Volume 1 primary focus is on research. Education is presently provided through lectures, hands-on workshops, exhibits, and through HRI’s World Hallmark book series, which covers gold, silver, platinum, and palladium hallmarks of Europe.
