Silver has been an extremely popular vehicle for storing wealth for thousands of years, and continues to attract millions of investors today. Unlike paper money, which can be created out of thin air, they can’t print more silver! Asahi and Johnson Matthey 100 oz .999 Fine Silver bars are an affordable and safe way to invest in silver while enjoying relatively low premiums compared to other silver products, and the Asahi and Johnson Matthey brands are at the top of the ladder in terms of quality and desirability.
In December of 2014, Johnson Matthey completed the sale of its gold and silver refining business to Asahi Holdings, Inc., commonly known simply as Asahi. Aside from some possible collector interest in the “old time” Johnson Matthey brand name, we believe the newer Asahi bars offer the same level of quality, liquidity and desirability as their Johnson Matthey counterparts.
The bars we ship under this product SKU will be either Johnson Matthey or Asahi branded, depending on our available inventory at the time of your order. If you specifically desire one brand name over the other, please contact us BEFORE placing your order, so we can determine whether or not we have it in stock.
