Silver bars have been a premier way for men and women to invest in silver bullion for several decades. When bullion first became a popular investment vehicle, silver bars were really only sold to institutional investors. Over time, retail investors were eventually given the opportunity to expand their bullion collections by purchasing high purity silver bars of varying sizes. This is great for people who want to enrich their stocks of gold and silver. Silver bars cut down on premium costs over spot, allowing investors to get as much pure bullion as possible for their cash.
Johnson Matthey is one of the oldest reputable producers of silver bars in the world. The mint was first founded in 1817 by gold assayer Percival Johnson. When speculator George Matthey joined the company all the way in 1851, the business took off and exploded in popularity. John Matthey silver bars always had a sort of rustic, authentic feeling to them. With over 200 years of experience minting high quality silver bars, John Matthey Mint has worked hard to establish an incredible reputation among consumers. Hero Bullion is excited to offer you the Johnson Matthey 50 Oz Silver Bar today.

These particular silver bars have been out of production for several years, making this product equal parts collectable and vintage. The 50 Oz version of Johnson Matthey’s silver bars were produced for only a short time, giving it a unique level of rarity compared to similarly sized silver bars. It is also important to note that these silver bars are struck with a utilitarian design philosophy, as is common among bullion bars. The bars vary in appearance, and may be shipped without a serial number. Their primary function is as a vehicle for investment in physical bullion; beauty in design is a secondary concern.
With a gross weight of 1,555.15 grams of .999 pure silver, the Johnson Matthey 50 Oz Silver Bar is an exceptionally large physical silver bullion product. Investors who have access to quite a bit of capital can benefit greatly from larger pieces like this. Extremely large bullion products further cut down on the premium price paid over spot, making a silver bar like this an excellent option for investors who want as much pure silver as possible for their money.
The big benefit to the Johnson Matthey silver bar is the vintage, limited availability of the edition. Some collectors are interested in beautifully crafted silver bars with toning, unique designs, and more. This silver bar is not made for these investors. Johnson Matthey 50 Oz Silver Bars might come with scratches, scuff marks, and other signs of their age.
Hero Bullion is proud to offer this limited availability to silver bullion collectors. These vintage bars display extensive signs of aging, providing consumers with a window into another time while also allowing them to expand their silver collection.
