Johnson & Matthey was established in 1817 and has a rich history in the precious metals industry. Founded as a gold assayer business, three decades later it would become the official assayer and refiner of the Bank of England. In the 1970s, it began issuing gold and silver bullion bars for modern investors to purchase as a means of protecting wealth against the fluctuations of modern stock markets.
The obverse of 5 oz Gold Johnson Matthey Bars features the company logo with identifying markers on the field of the bar. The logo of Johnson Matthey is simplistic in nature and consists of an oval with the name of the company as “Johnson Matthey SLC” featured in the outer rim of the oval. The purity, metal content, and weight of the bar are also featured on this side. Cast gold bars such as these have an incuse strike for design elements. This means the design strikes are sunk into the surface of the bar rather than engraved onto it in 3D relief.
On the reverse side of 5 oz Gold Bars such as these cast bars from Johnson & Matthey is a blank field. No purposeful design elements have been stamped on this side. However, you will notice textures and other striations resulting from the settling of the gold as it cools within the mold during the production process.
Johnson & Matthey exited the precious metals industry in 2016 with the sale of its units to Asahi Inc. of Japan. The company sold two refineries in the United States and an assayer’s office in Canada to Asahi.
