Due to the clipping of the coinage prevalent by the late 17th century between 1697 and 1720 it was made illegal to make silver items from sterling standard silver (92.5% silver), as used in the coinage, but only of 95.8% silver (now known as Britannia standard) in England. From 1720, however, England returned to using Sterling standard but Britannia standard remained an option for goldsmiths and their clients. Comparatively little Britannia standard silver was produced between 1720 and the late nineteenth century but in the last quarter of the nineteenth century there was renewed interest and only then was it deemed necessary to replace the punches cut in the eighteenth century.
