Bullion Ledgers: Bullion delivered and received, 1819-1914

VII/14/0-30, 31 volumes

This series forms a record of all bullion delivered and received and the value thereof. There is a significant gap in the record, nothing having survived for the years between 1869 and 1889. In the early volumes, up to 1857, the form of the bullion, bar or coin, is recorded. Many of the transactions are with the Bank of England, Sharpe, Hill, and in later, indexed, volumes, from 1890, the names of Mocatta & Goldsmid and Matthey appear.
