JOHNSON MATTHEY AND ENGELHARD GOLD BARS
About Johnson Matthey And Engelhard
Engelhard and Johnson Matthey are two of the oldest most reputable mints in the precious metal industry. Engelhard was founded by Charles Engelhard over 100 years ago and was first specialized in precious metals melting and refining. Over the years, Engelhard also manufactured bullion of high-quality silver, gold, and platinum. The German manufacturer BASF acquired in 2006 the Engelhard Mint. On the other hand, Johnson Matthey’s history begins more than 200 years ago, when Percival Norton Johnson established his refining and assaying company in London in 1817.
Later in 1851, the company became Johnson Matthey when Percival joined its forces with the famous English stockbroker George Matthey. Right after their partnership establishment, Johnson Matthey became the official assayer and refiner of Bank of England. Today, since 2015, Johnson Matthey is owned by the newly formed company Asahi Refining. Both Engelhard and Johnson Matthey are famous for their outstanding gold and silver bars, among other silver and gold bars available on the market. Additionally, they were the first companies to created the catalytic converters which are used for managing vehicle pollution.
