This silver coin celebrates the fictional British Secret Service agent James Bond, also known as 007. Created by author Ian Fleming in 1953, Producers Albert R. ‘Cubby’ Broccoli and Harry Saltzman brought Bond to cinema screens for the first time in 1962 with Dr. No. More than 50 years later, James Bond continues to entertain and excite audiences around the world in one of the longest running and successful film franchises. The 007 gun logo was designed by Joseph Caroff under Creative Director David Chasman of United Artists. Together with the franchise’s signature opening sequence, which portrays Bond at the centre of a stylised gun barrel to begin every film, the 007 gun logo has become synonymous with the character. Struck from 1oz of 99.99% pure silver, The Perth Mint will release no more than 3,000 of the James Bond 007 2020 1oz Silver Coin in card packaging.
