ENGELHARD
is pleased to welcome visitors to our Johnson Matthey Odd Size Definitive Page. While our focus is clearly Engelhard, we recognize that many Engelhard bullion collectors also collect Johnson Matthey bars and ingots. As such, we appreciate the opportunity to present important bullion information on the world’s second most collectible refiner, Johnson Matthey. We hope you welcome this new addition, and we look forward to your thoughts and input!

Our Definitives, below, are organized region of origin. Also note that our Definitives reflect what we believe to be the earliest examples first, followed by more recent production examples.
