ASAHI SILVER BARS
Asahi Assayers and Refiners is one of the few new private mints to have emerged in recent years although their refinery business is not so new. The company was formed in 2015 when the Japanese Corporation – Asahi Holdings – purchased the gold and silver facilities of Johnson Matthey located in the United States and Canada. Asahi Holdings was established in 1952 – is particularly specialized in refining rare precious metals, like palladium and platinum, as well as in the treatment and detoxification of industrial and hazardous wastes. Johnson Matthey was a prestigious mint, established back in 1817 and has a 200-year history of refining and minting. It was well-known by investors and collectors due to its high-quality bullion products. Since the foundation of the new company, its qualified artisans focused on providing superior bullion products.
