The coin’s reverse depicts a black and white image of Sean Connery in a classic James Bond pose, along with the iconic 007 logo and logos of his six official Bond films – Dr. No (1962), From Russia with Love (1963), Goldfinger (1964), Thunderball (1965), You Only Live Twice (1967) and Diamonds Are Forever (1971). The obverse bears the Ian Rank-Broadley portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2020 year-date, weight, purity and monetary denomination.
