Backstory. Roger Moore was the third actor to play fictional British Secret Service agent James Bond on the big screen. With a strong track record of popular action characters to his credit, Moore was chosen by producers Cubby Broccoli and Harry Saltzman to debut as 007 in 1973’s Live And Let Die. Setting a new tone for the iconic spy, Moore’s portrayal was as debonair as it was dangerous, often with a deadly sense of humour. Combatting highly memorable villains, mastering extraordinary gadgets and executing a line-up of outrageous stunts, Moore triumphed in six further releases: The Man With The Golden Gun, The Spy Who Loved Me, Moonraker, For Your Eyes Only, Octopussy, and A View To A Kill. He still holds the record for most appearances as Bond in the EON series of 25 movies to date.

Care. 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.
