The RC mark is used by Carrs of Sheffield.

Next is the Sheffield rose that replaced the crown in 1974 or 1975…
Next is the Briyannia mark for .958 fineness.
Date mark C is for 1977.
Last mark is the optional Silver Jubilee mark .

Just a small addition to snuffer’s remarks:

There is no lion because that would indicate sterling (.925 fineness). This, as snuffer says, is Britannia standard, so the Britannia mark replaces the lion passant. And, yes, it is silver, the correct term for this process being silver-gilt.
