Each 20 oz Johnson Matthey Silver Bar available to you in this product listing is what is known as a secondary market product. These are not newly produced bars from Johnson Matthey, but rather ones that were previously purchased and have been resold to authorized dealers. The bars are available with protective packaging that offers either a protective sleeve or box for the product.
Secondary market bars do have the potential to feature with flaws and blemishes. The signs of wear and tear on secondary market Johnson Matthey bars can vary from minuscule in nature to moderate or heavy. It is rare to see a secondary market bar that has no wear and tear at all as the products are previously owned and often removed from the original packaging.
These 20 oz Johnson Matthey Silver Bars are cast silver bars from one of the rarest weight lineups the refiner offered. Johnson Matthey typically offered minted ingots in 1 oz, 10 oz, and 1 Kilo weights, along with cast silver bars in the popular larger weights for this type such as 100 oz, 5 Kilos, or even 400 oz. The 20 oz silver bar was rarely produced.
On the obverse of these 20 oz Johnson Matthey Silver Bars are a handful of simple engravings that meet the minimum standard for Good Deliver cast silver bars. Youll find the initials JM on the bar along with the crossed hammers that featured in the logo. Some secondary market bars may alternatively feature only the initials of JMC. In either case, the obverse of the bars also features inscriptions of the weight and purity for the bars.
Johnson Matthey was founded in 1817 and has been in business for more than 200 years now. The company was started by Percival Norton Johnson as a gold assaying business in London and George Matthey joined the business in 1851. In 1852, the company became the Official Assayer and Refiner to the Bank of England.
