Visitors to the Assay Office will also be able to treat themselves to a souvenir or perhaps purchase a gift for a loved one from the Assay Office Gift Shop.  All silver items have been made in Birmingham and hallmarked at the Assay Office.  The support shown to the Quarter's local businesses is very much appreciated by all.  There is also a range of books, cards and sundry items available to buy.  Why not take a look for yourself at our online gift shop at
