"Pay Attention 007" James Bond £5 Brilliant Uncirculated Coin - By The Royal Mint
"Pay attention 007"... The Royal Mint is celebrating James Bond, the world's favourite secret agent, with an official UK 007 coin series. The £5 brilliant uncirculated James Bond coin is the second in the series and is a great way to continue the collection, or own a unique Bond collectable.
Backstory. The second coin in the collection explores the technology that has characterised the films, from exploding pens to ejector seats. This coin features ‘Wet Nellie’, the Lotus Esprit S1 car from The Spy Who Loved Me (1977). Perhaps the single most outlandish car Bond has driven, the iconic white Lotus Esprit is capable of transforming from surface driving to submersible operations underwater.
Details. Struck to a finer finish than UK circulating coins, this £5 coin is housed in fold-out packaging featuring behind the scenes images of the Bond movies. The coin features Wet Nellie with the iconic Q quote "Pay attention 007" against a backdrop of the 007 logo. Created by graphic design partnership Christian Davies and Matt Dent, the design includes telltale bubbles, giving a sense that the car is underwater.
