The Royal Mint on May 28 continued its series of James Bond coins, issuing the fifth coin in its Six Decades of 007 coin series, which features a reverse design depicting the memorable hovercraft from Die Another Day.

The release features one base metal coin, three Proof .999 fine silver coins, and three Proof .9999 fine gold coins.

The 2000s, an incredible period for the James Bond franchise, saw the series enter its fifth decade of cinema and transition into the new millennium. It also saw a changing of the guard once more as Daniel Craig, in 2006, took on the role of 007, marking a new era for the illustrious British secret agent.

Featuring some of the most memorable and beloved Bond films of all time, including Die Another Day, Casino Royale and Quantum Of Solace, the 2000s was truly an iconic decade for 007.

Designed by award-winning agency Bison Bison (composed of designers Matt Dent and Christian Davies), the reverse of the coins feature the hovercraft from the opening sequence of Die Another Day and the iconic 007 symbol styled as it appeared in the 2000s.

With the titles of the decade’s Bond films serving as the background, the central design is neatly bordered by the familiar gun barrel used in the opening of every 007 film.
