James Bond £5 Crown Brilliant Uncirculated Coin - 1990s Edition - By The Royal Mint

007 returns to The Royal Mint with a seven-coin journey through the decades celebrating the legacy of James Bond.

The James Bond £5 Crown Brilliant Uncirculated Coin - 1990s Edition by The Royal Mint is a celebration of the Bond films of the 1990s with a coin designed by award-winning design agency Bison Bison. The coin features 007 in the Q Boat from the opening sequence of The World Is Not Enough. 

Backstory.For the film’s pre-title high-speed river chase, the team required a boat that was highly manoeuvrable, and which could stay airborne for almost 90ft after hitting speeds up to 80mph. Engineer and boat builder Doug Riddle designed a custom racing machine with a V8 engine offering up 300bhp. On full plane, the boat can operate in just four inches of water.

Details.Struck to a finer finish than UK circulating coins, this £5 coin features the boat in relief against inscriptions of all the 1990s film titles, with the '90s 007 logo within a gun barrel frame. On the obverse is a portrait of King Charles, dated 2024. Each coin comes with commemorative packaging detailing James Bond’s 1990s history.

Dimensions.D38.61mm, weight 28.28g
