Introducing the James Bond Goldfinger 1/2 oz Silver Proof Coin by The Perth Mint.
The third in a series of 25 Bond coins, this officially licensed product celebrates Goldfinger, the 1964 blockbuster from the most successful film franchise of all time. Each coin in the Perth Mint’s James Bond official 25-coin collection has a fully coloured design and celebrates a particular movie. These unique James Bond collectibles depict images from the original posters and are struck by The Perth Mint from 1/2oz of 99.99% pure silver. Issued as Tuvalu legal tender, the coins have a maximum mintage of 12,007 each.
Backstory. In the third film in the series, James Bond is assigned to investigate one of the wealthiest men in the world, Auric Goldfinger, who is suspected of smuggling England’s gold reserves. Interestingly, this was the first film to feature the iconic DB5 - Aston Martin loaned the filmmakers the first ever development prototype of the DB5, which they subsequently modified with a host of gadgets.
Details. The coin’s design features Bond and Pussy Galore set against the iconic gold painted hand that was featured in the movie poster artwork – all in colour. The other side bears the Ian-Rank Broadley portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2021 year date, weight and purity, and monetary denomination. Each coin is presented in a 007 acrylic display case within a Goldfinger box, accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity featuring poster artwork.
The makers. The Perth Mint is 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.
The reverse of each coin depicts colour washed elements from the film’s official movie poster. Designs also include the iconic gun barrel graphic from the franchise’s signature opening sequence, the famous 007 gun logo and the official movie logo.
Subscribers will receive two custom designed Bond-themed Collection folders to store, display and protect their James Bond Official 25-Coin Collection.
Each coin comes in a Perspex capsule for mounting within its Collection folder. Each coin is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity which can also be stored inside the folder. Coins are delivered to subscribers in disposable packets.
