"Pay Attention 007" James Bond Two Ounce Silver Proof 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. Struck in two ounces of 99% fine silver, this is the second coin in the series and is a great way to continue the collection, or own a unique Bond collectable. Part of the Inspired Innovation collection, the coin is made with a secret micro-text design. The two ounce silver proof James Bond coin is released in a limited edition of just 2,007 and is finished to Proof standard – the finest minting finish.
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.
Micro text.Concealed within the micro text is a hidden message. When viewing the series of three coins together, you can look for the letters that are bolder and raised to make up the title of the 25th film, No Time To Die. This is the only silver Pay Attention 007 coin in the Royal Mint's Inspired Innovation range.
Details. A two ounce silver proof coin in a presentation box. The coin features Wet Nellie with the iconic Q quote "Pay attention 007" against a backdrop of the 007 logo. Micro-text is included within the 007 motif - find the titles of the first 25 James Bond films within the micro-text. Created by graphic design partnership Christian Davies and Matt Dent, the design includes telltale bubbles, giving a sense that the car is underwater. The coin is boxed and has a companion booklet revealing the designers’ inspiration and behind the scenes images from the James Bond films
