Johnson Matthey was founded in 1851 by two assayers from London. The company was appointed the official assayer and refiner for the Bank of England in 1852, establishing a long-lasting position in the banking and bullion industry. In the late 20th century, Johnson Matthey developed a reputation as one of the leading industrial refiners and suppliers of precious metals to a variety of industries. The company’s silver bars were known for their quality and purity, and they became a popular choice among investors and collectors.
