Johnson Matthey was once a giant of the precious metals industry. The company was formed as a gold assayers shop in London by Percival Norton Johnson in 1817, and some 34 years later he merged his company with George Matthey to create Johnson Matthey. One year later, the duo’s firm was selected by the Bank of England as its Official Assayer and Refiner.
Today, Johnson Matthey has pulled back from its position as a refiner in the precious metals industry. Its assets were sold to Asahi Refining of Tokyo, Japan at the end of 2015, and production of new silver and gold bars under the Asahi banner resumed at former Johnson Matthey refineries in the United States and Canada.
On the obverse of these 1 oz Gold Johnson Matthey Bars you’ll find the corporate logo of the former company. This includes a “JM” next to the crossed hammers, both of which are featured inside of a rectangle. Additional engravings follow below that in descending order and include “Johnson Matthey,” “Assayers & Refiners,” “Fine Gold 9999,” “1 Ounce Troy,” and the individual serial number.
The reverse of most 1 oz Gold Johnson Matthey Bars includes a repeating image. This depicts the corporate logo found at the top of the obverse side, but set on a 45-degree angle in a repeating pattern across the bar’s face.
