Backstory. From a thrilling jet chase to a climactic countdown to nuclear disaster, James Bond investigates the murder of a fellow agent who was clutching a priceless Faberge egg at the time of his death.
Details. The coin features an iconic full colour design of Bond with his tuxedo and gun, together with Octopussy, taken from the film poster. This is overlaid with the movie's title lettering. The other side bears the Ian-Rank Broadley portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2021 year date, weight and purity, and monetary denomination. Each coin is presented in a 007 acrylic display case within a box, accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity featuring poster artwork.

Please note: We recommend keeping your coin within its protective display housing at all times. If touched or left exposed to the air, the freshly minted precious metal will react to atmospheric dust and moisture, as well as oils and acids in the skin, leaving marks that cannot be removed. We cannot be held responsible if this happens. If you do choose to handle your coin, always wear gloves and hold it by its edges.
