New date letter Y for 2023

2023 Silver ingot

Every year from 1979 onwards, I’ve made an ingot and each one is different.  This is 2023 – ‘Y’.  Just one letter to go in the current cycle then in 2025, we start again.  There’s more detail here.

Date letter for 2023Here it is very much magnified and straining the autofocus on my camera.

I’m just wondering, as Charles III is being crowned this year, will there be an extra mark?  History suggests there might be, but I’ve not heard yet.
