The Royal Mint have officially released a brand-new series of coins, taking collectors on a journey through an incredible legacy of cinematic history.
From the 60s, all the way through the noughties to present day, the new seven-coin series features none other than the suave and sophisticated, James Bond.
The first coin starts us off in the swinging 60s, with ‘You Only Live Twice’. The classic gun sight background and iconic 007 logo adorns the reverse, alongside an excellent depiction of autogyro ‘Little Nellie’ and Sean Connery’s adaptation of James Bond in the driver’s seat.
The Edition Limit
The Silver Proof edition of this coin – by far the most popular with collectors – has an edition limit of just 4,007 (do you see what they did there?). Now, let me put this into perspective…
In 2020, The Royal Mint released three, 1oz Silver Coins for James Bond – the first of its kind – each with an edition limit of 7,007 coins. All three coins completely sold out.
These coins are now highly desired by collectors. In fact, securing them on the secondary market can be a real chore given the scarcity and collectability of any piece of Bond memorabilia.
So, with an edition limit that is almost HALF that of the sell-out coins, these new coins are virtually guaranteed to be snapped up.
How you can secure yours
What’s more, by securing your coin today you can be added to the Priority List, which will give you priority access to all future coins in ‘Decades of Bond £5 coin series’…
2022 marks the 60th anniversary of one of Britain’s most famed fictional action heroes – the one and only, James Bond!
You can now join The Perth Mint in honouring this exciting anniversary with an exquisite 1oz Silver Proof Rectangle Coin!
But first, let’s go back to where it all began…
Born from the innovative mind of former intelligence officer and author Ian Fleming in 1953, James Bond has become the most iconic fictional British Secret Service agent EVER!
Now, 60 years after the premiere of the first movie, Dr. No, James Bond continues to entertain and excite audiences around the world in one of cinema’s longest running and most successful franchises.
The Coin Itself…
To commemorate 60 years of revolutionary cinema, this officially licensed 1oz rectangular coin has been struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.99% pure silver in proof quality, and even issued as legal tender under the authority of the Government of Tuvalu!
Not only is the coin’s coloured reverse a representation of the official 60th anniversary logo and the iconic 007-gun motif, but each coin is presented in a 007 branded case inside themed packaging. The coin also comes accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
But that’s not all – the obverse of the coin bears the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, along with the 2022 year-date, weight, purity and monetary denomination.
But, there’s a catch…
With a shockingly low worldwide edition limit of 5,000, the good news is we have managed to get our hands on a small amount for only our most dedicated collectors…
Just 100 coins are available to our UK customers, and with this product commemorating one of the most popular British themes, very few collectors will be able to seize this rare opportunity!
Bond is back!
After six long years, and three covid-19 delays the latest James Bond instalment, No time to die, is finally here!
And to celebrate, we’ve been hard at work behind the scenes with Bond Girl, Britt Ekland – who has signed JUST 195 James Bond UK coin collections…
And in today’s video I’m giving you an exclusive first look at this signed limited edition!
