Johnson Matthey was founded by Percival Norton Johnson in London, England in 1817. The company began as a gold assayers shop under Johnsons guidance, and grew to Johnson Matthey after George Matthey joined the business in 1851. One year later, the business earned status as an Official Assayer & Refiner to the Bank of England.
Today however, Johnson Matthey is no longer involved in the precious metals marketplace. After more than 150 years in the industry, the company sold its silver and gold refining business to Japans Asahi Ltd. As a result, these 10 oz Johnson Matthey Silver Bars are some of the few remaining JM products available for purchase on the secondary market and highly collectable.
