2022 marks the 60th anniversary of one of Britain’s most famed fictional action heroes – the one and only, James Bond!
You can now join The Perth Mint in honouring this exciting anniversary with an exquisite 1oz Silver Proof Rectangle Coin!
But first, let’s go back to where it all began…
Born from the innovative mind of former intelligence officer and author Ian Fleming in 1953, James Bond has become the most iconic fictional British Secret Service agent EVER!
Now, 60 years after the premiere of the first movie, Dr. No, James Bond continues to entertain and excite audiences around the world in one of cinema’s longest running and most successful franchises.
The Coin Itself…
To commemorate 60 years of revolutionary cinema, this officially licensed 1oz rectangular coin has been struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.99% pure silver in proof quality, and even issued as legal tender under the authority of the Government of Tuvalu!
Not only is the coin’s coloured reverse a representation of the official 60th anniversary logo and the iconic 007-gun motif, but each coin is presented in a 007 branded case inside themed packaging. The coin also comes accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
But that’s not all – the obverse of the coin bears the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, along with the 2022 year-date, weight, purity and monetary denomination.
But, there’s a catch…
With a shockingly low worldwide edition limit of 5,000, the good news is we have managed to get our hands on a small amount for only our most dedicated collectors…
Just 100 coins are available to our UK customers, and with this product commemorating one of the most popular British themes, very few collectors will be able to seize this rare opportunity!

The British Broadcasting Corporation has provided information, education and entertainment globally for a century. We thought what better way to mark their 100 year anniversary than looking at some of the important events that the BBC has broadcasted.
Queen Elizabeth II Coronation
Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation in 1953 was the first major service to be televised by the BBC. 27 million people in the UK watched the ceremony on television and a further 11 million listened to their radio broadcasts.
Queen Elizabeth II Jubilees
During her incredible 70 year reign, Queen Elizabeth II celebrated many jubilees. Most significantly, her Platinum Jubilee in 2022 was one of the most watched televised events of recent times.

The 1948 Olympic Games were held in Wembley, and the BBC televised the games for the first time, screening over 50 hours of coverage during the 2-week event.
When the Olympics returned to London in 2012, the BBC covered all the events and a staggering 51.9 million people – 90% of the population – tuned in.
In 2021, a UK 50p was authorised for release to celebrate Team GB’s participation in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics – which was once again televised by the BBC.
The FA Cup Matches
2022 marked 150 years of the FA Cup. During BBC One’s coverage of The FA Cup final between Chelsea and Liverpool, viewer numbers peaked in the final half hour of the match with 8 million people watching.
To mark the 150th anniversary of the FA Cup, The Royal Mint issued this £2, which sold out in all limited-edition presentations within just HOURS of issue!
The marriage of Charles and Diana took place in 1981 and remains one of the most-watched programmes on the BBC, with over 28 million people tuning in to either watch or listen to the coverage.
In 2011, Prince William married Kate Middleton and more than 13.6 million people watched the coverage on BBC One, making theirs the third most-watched Royal Wedding.
