James Bond is a fictional British Secret Service agent created by former intelligence officer and author Ian Fleming in 1953. His famous character featured in 12 novels and two short story collections before producers Albert R. ‘Cubby’ Broccoli and Harry Saltzman brought Bond to cinemas for the first time in 1962.

In The Man With The Golden Gun, Bond hunts for the ‘Solex Agitator’, an advanced technological component stolen by Scaramanga in order to weaponize his solar energy plant. Played by Roger Moore in his second outing as the daring agent, Bond employs all his trickery to outwit the assassin and his signature golden gun, with the decisive action taking place inside the unnerving surroundings of the funhouse, a deadly maze on Scaramanga’s tropical island home.

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 The Man With The Golden Gun 50th Anniversary 2024 1oz Silver Proof Coloured Coin.

The coin portrays coloured images of James Bond and Francisco Scaramanga standing back-to-back at the start of their pistol duel. The background incorporates representations of the sea and islands, with spiral shapes from the famous 007 gun barrel logo. The coloured inscription ‘THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN GUN FIFTY YEARS’ sits beneath the Bond Family Crest bearing the motto ORBIS NON SUFFICIT (the world is not enough) and the number 50.

The obverse of the coin bears the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II supplemented with the dates of her reign ‘1952-2022’, as well as the coin’s weight, purity, monetary denomination and 2024 year-date.

Each coin is presented in a 007 branded case within a themed shipper and accompanied by a numbered certificate of authenticity.
