The Royal Mint has unveiled a new range of collectable and bullion coins in celebration of 60 Years of James Bond.
The latest 007 range by The Royal Mint, will see six decades of Bond celebrated on their own official UK collectable and bullion coins.
Each design will feature an iconic scene from a different decade of James Bond. The first coin celebrating 007 in the 1960s depicts Sean Connery’s James Bond sat in Little Nellie, the legendary gyroplane from You Only Live Twice (1967). The titles of each James Bond film of the decade make up the background, the stylised 007 logo of the 1960s appears at the base of the coin, and the classic gun barrel features around the perimeter of the design.
Rebecca Morgan, Director of Commemorative Coin at The Royal Mint said, “James Bond is Britain’s favourite secret agent who has captivated audiences for over 60 years. We are delighted to be unveiling a new collectable coin range to celebrate 007’s journey. Each coin will feature a unique design linking to the films of that decade, which is a testament to the coin making skills that our craftspeople have perfected over the years. We hope 007 enthusiasts and coin collectors find a special place for these limited-edition coins in their existing James Bond or coin collections.”
Andrew Dickey, Director of Precious Metals at The Royal Mint said, “We’re excited to launch the 007 range of bullion coins, a celebration of British culture that combines exclusive design with meticulous craftsmanship. These bullion coins, available in 1oz gold and 1oz silver and minted to the highest specifications, embody the standards of quality and excellence expected from a world-leading mint. I have no doubt they’ll resonate with investors and collectors, as well as a new audience seeking to give the timeless gift of gold or silver.”
The James Bond bullion coins are available as 1oz 999.9 fine gold and 1oz 999 fine silver with pricing based on the live precious metal price that day. Each collectable coin is available as gold Proof, silver Proof and Brilliant Uncirculated editions with prices starting from £14.50.
