1 kilogram Gold Bar - Johnson Matthey


With a heritage reaching back to the Industrial Revolution in Britain, Johnson Matthey has reached forward to become an enormous multinational corporation, conducting business in more than 30 countries all across the globe, achieving estimated revenues in 2016 of some 10.7 billion pounds (almost 14 billion USD).  From 1971 to 2000, Johnson Matthey was the most prolific manufacturer of minted bars in North America. While it recently divested itself of its own refining facilities in the USA, it still operates several facilities here, while contracting the United States Mint at West Point, NY for the manufacture of some of its bullion products, including some of these 24 karat, 1 kilo (32.1507 troy ounce or 2.2 pound) gold bars.

This is a compact size which makes it suitable for discreet home storage unless, of course, it is part of a larger holding. It is, however, by no means an inexpensive article which is why we recommend secure storage in our partner’s vault facilities in New York or three other countries.

The bar is stamped with the company hallmark, which could be Johnson Matthey (sometimes also with SLC—for Salt Lake City— or Canada) around the gold’s purity (.9999) inside a double oval, or a JM within a diamond, sometimes with crossed hammer and geologist’s pick. It will also show the bar’s weight (1 kilo) and individual serial number. The back is usually unmarked.

The Johnson Matthey 1 Kilo Gold Bar deserves consideration by those wishing to purchase this finest precious metal for savings, investment, or a wise hedge against economic uncertainty.


Johnson Matthey sold its gold and silver refining operations at two North American facilities, one in Brampton, Ontario and in Salt Lake City, Utah to Asahi Holdings of Japan in 2015. It maintains other operations in Wayne, PA and West Chester, PA.
