In 1893, a law was enacted in Denmark that standardized a new system of silver marking. Required were: Maker's Mark, Numerical Standard Mark, Assay Mark (three tower), and Assay Master's Initial Mark. The minimum standard of silver purity was .826, this was amended to .830 in 1936 and .925 became the other official standard, although it had been commonly used before, especially on silver made for export.

As the 20th century progressed, the official state hallmarks are found less and less, they were officially retired in 1977, it had already become common practice for pieces to be marked only with the maker's intials, 925S and, sometimes, Sterling and "Denmark".
