Hello,
I will be happy to help you here. Thank you for the images.

If these are sterling silver, each spoon will have English sterling hallmarks stamped on the backside.

A sterling silver, commemorative boxed spoon set for Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee celebration has a value of 145GBP - 215GBP.

If plated silver, the value is 35GBP - 70GBP for the set altogether.

I hope this is helpful to you.

Sincerely,

Nora

Thanks for the response is this picture better to see 8f lf they are silver?
Expert:  Nora replied 11 days ago.

Hi,

You are welcome.

The stamps on the spoon are not in focus in the image here.

I recommend setting the spoon down on a surface to take a clear, in-focus, close-up.

Regards,

Nora

Sorry its difficult to see on the gallery which pictures to pic x hope this is better as I don't have them with me at the minute x

Hi,

These are English sterling silver hallmarked; however the image is not in focus. I can only discern the anchor mark, which indicates the pieces were assayed in Birmingham.
