Does Czech republic apply other than Czech hallmarks?
In addition to the current Czech hallmarks, all hallmarks that were valid in history in Czechoslovakia and and did not show a lower fineness than the lowest fineness for each of the precious metals specified by the Hallmarking Act (§3, paragraph 2) are valid. These are the Austro-Hungarian, Czechoslovak, Protectorate and Slovak Republic hallmarks. It does not apply to hallmarks, which were introduced during the Second World War on Czechoslovak territory, occupied by foreign countries (Austrian, Polish and Hungarian marks).

There are also hallmarks in our country of The Convention on the Control and Marking of Articles of Precious Metals (Hallmarking Convention), see http://www.hallmarkingconvention.org/.

HERE you can find pictures of Czech conventional brands, the other member states of the Convention have their own similar brands.

After the accession of the Czech Republic to the European Union were gradually recognized hallmarks of some Member States of the European Union, as of the date of this text update (6. 1. 2016) they are selected hallmarks of Estonia, Finland, Croatia, Ireland, Cyprus, Lithuania, Latvia, Hungary, Malta, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia and Great Britain.
