Introducing the James Bond Dr. No Silver Proof Coin with Colour by The Perth Mint.
Celebrating Dr. No, the 1962 blockbuster that established one of the most successful film franchises of all time, this unique James Bond collectible depicts images from the original poster and is struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.99% pure silver. Issued as Tuvalu legal tender, the coins have a maximum mintage of 5,000 each.
Backstory. As the first film in the series, Dr. No immediately established James Bond as one of cinema’s most recognisable characters.
Details. The coin’s design portrays a painted image of Bond and Honey Ryder on the beach in a classic pose with gun – all in colour. Based on the film poster, the design includes the official ‘Dr. No’ logo in colour and the Bond Family Crest bearing the motto ‘ORBIS NON SUFFICIT’ (the world is not enough) and the number 60. The other side bears the Ian-Rank Broadley portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2022 year date, weight and purity, and monetary denomination. Each coin is presented in in a Dr. No box, accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.
The makers. The Perth Mint is the official mint of Australia and is wholly owned by the Government of Western Australia. The mint manufactures and distributes platinum, silver and gold coins for collectors and customers worldwide.
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.
