Johnson Matthey spent nearly 200 years in the precious metals industry in one way or another. The company was founded in London in 1817 as a gold assayer. Founder Percival Norton Johnson established the company that year and ran it by himself until 1851 when George Matthey joined the business. Over 150 years ago, it took on its current name as Johnson & Matthey and the next year became the official assayer and refiner for the Bank of England.
All of the 20 oz Gold Johnson Matthey Bars available through this product listing come to you with protective materials for the shipping process. The bars are safely wrapped in protective shipping materials and delivered to you in standard cardboard boxes.
On the obverse side of 20 oz Gold Johnson Matthey Bars are several markings, all of which are struck incuse into the bar. Cast gold bars typically have incuse strikes as it is easier to produce these markings on the bar as it cools during the production process. In the case of these 20 oz Gold Bars, you will find the Johnson Matthey oval logo with the name of the mint included. The weight, metal content, and purity of the gold bar are also featured on this side.
While the reverse face of 20 oz Gold Johnson Matthey Bars does not have a specific design element, it is not within visual uniqueness. Many cast bars have distinctive striations, patterns, and textures that result from the cooling process as the metal settles into place within the mold after it is poured.
Johnson & Matthey is still in operation today as a British multinational chemical and sustainable technology firm. However, it is no longer actively involved in precious metals. It sold its North American manufacturing and assaying facilities to Japan-based Asahi in 2016, exiting the precious metals industry after almost exactly 200 years.
