The Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths, more commonly known as the Goldsmiths’ Company, is one of the Twelve Great Livery Companies of the City of London and received its first royal charter in 1327.
The purpose of the Goldsmiths’ Company is to contribute to British national life by supporting its related crafts, industry and trade and through wider charitable and educational activity. The main objectives of the Company are:
- To support the precious metal and jewellery crafts, industry and trade through training, education and promotion, including through programmes delivered by the Goldsmiths’ Centre;
- To operate the Assay Office and test the coinage of the realm annually through the Trial of the Pyx;
- To administer and act as trustee of the Company’s charities;
- To build on our traditions to enhance our contribution to life, work, education and culture in the City of London and in other parts of the United Kingdom;
- To manage our financial affairs to secure the long term future of the Company and its activities.

Founded to regulate the craft or trade of the goldsmith, the Goldsmiths’ Company has been responsible since 1300 for testing the quality of gold, silver, from 1975, platinum, and from 2010, Palladium.
