We are excited to present this officially licensed James Bond 2oz Silver Proof Gilded Coin celebrating the 60 Years of Bond movies.
James Bond is a fictional British Secret Service agent created by former intelligence officer and author Ian Fleming in 1953. His famous character featured in 12 novels and two short story collections before producers Albert R. ‘Cubby’ Broccoli and Harry Saltzman brought Bond to cinema screens for the first time in 1962.
During EON Productions’ 25 Bond blockbusters to date, the spy has been memorably portrayed by six actors -Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig, who each brought their own unique flair to the role. Now, 60 years after the premiere of Dr. No, James Bond continues to entertain and excite audiences around the world in one of film’s longest running and most successful franchises.
