Shipping early December 2020, this James Bond 1oz silver proof coin celebrates the 25th anniversary of GoldenEye (1995). Struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.99% pure silver, the coin is issued as legal tender under the authority of the Government of Tuvalu. The Perth Mint will release no more than 5,000 of the James Bond GoldenEye 25th Anniversary 2020 1oz Silver Proof Coin.
Backstory. GoldenEye saw James Bond on the trail of Alec Trevelyan, a vengeful rogue agent who is in possession of a terrifying satellite-borne weapons system. The opening sequence, in which James Bond bungee jumps from the top of a dam wall, is regarded as one of the best movie stunts of all time. Pierce Brosnan captured the timeless appeal of the character in a new world of high-technology and post-Cold War intrigue.
Details. The coin’s reverse depicts the incredible dam wall bungee jump scene from the opening of GoldenEye, with the title graphic, the Bond Family Crest bearing the motto ORBIS NON SUFFICIT (the world is not enough) and the number 25. The obverse of the coin bears the Ian Rank-Broadley portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2020 year-date, weight and purity and monetary denomination. Each coin is presented in a 007 branded case within a themed shipper and accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
The makers. The Perth Mint is Australia's official bullion mint 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.
