ENGELHARD
is pleased to welcome visitors to our Western Mint Inc and Western Silver Ltd 1oz Definitive Page. While our focus is clearly Engelhard, we recognize that many Engelhard bullion collectors also collect other bars and ingots.  As such, we appreciate the opportunity to present important bullion information on Western Mint and Western Silver as the Canadian representative of Johnson Matthey & Mallory, Limited, from 1973 to 1975. Western Mint produced their bars from silver sourced exclusively from Johnson Matthey and was part of their silver art bar division.   We hope you welcome this new addition, and we look forward to your thoughts and input!
