These are now sold out at the mint, no more are being produced as Johnson Matthey’s refining business has been sold. Please be advised that some of these bars naturally have a mildly tarnished appearance.
Though Johnson Matthey has been producing silver bars for well over a century, these particular bars are one of their newly minted pieces. Each one of their silver bars consists of 100 troy ounces of silver which is 99.9% pure and feature a simplistic design.
The design of the Johnson Matthey 100 oz silver bar is a lot different than that of other silver bars on the market today. Though the inscriptions located on the front side of the bar are fairly standard with its weight, purity, mint mark all visibly stamped, its shape is what differentiates it from the competition. The bar is shaped almost like a loaf of bread and is slightly indented on its face. The front side of the bar is also slightly wider than its backside. This simple, yet carefully thought out design makes these bars ideal for stacking in large quantities.
Johnson Matthey was founded in the UK in the early 1800s by Percival Norton Johnson. Throughout the duration of the 19th century, the name of the company made many small changes. By the end of the 20th century Johnson Matthey had expanded their business reach into a number of different industries besides precious metals. Nowadays they have a large presence in the auto industry as producers of catalytic converters. Despite being founded and based out of the UK, Johnson Matthey has managed to garner the respect and admiration of investors from all over the globe.
