George Foord was one of the first two assayers employed by the Royal Mint when it opened its Melbourne branch in the late 1800s. He helped refine and speed up the process of assaying precious metals. Before joining the Mint he worked as a chemist and geologist in the Victorian goldfields. Foord published widely and was a Fellow of the Chemical Society (FCS), member of the Victorian Institute for the Advancement of Science from 1854 and of the Royal Society of Victoria from 1872.
