2020 Tuvalu $2 007 James Bond 0.5g Gold Coin
This 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.
James Bond is one of a handful of elite agents with a ‘licence to kill’, denoted by a code name beginning with ‘00’.
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 at the beginning of every film, the 007 gun logo has become synonymous with the character.
Struck by The Perth Mint from 0.5g of 99.99% pure gold, the 007 James Bond 2020 0.5g Gold Coin has an unlimited mintage.
