Six Decades of 007: Bond of the 1970s 2024 1oz Gold Coin

The Bond of the 1970s Gold 1oz coin is the second in a six-part Royal Mint limited series celebrating the world renowned British spy James Bond. Struck in 999.9 fineness 24 carat gold, commemorating each decade of 007. The coins will come in a Royal Mint tube if bought in quantities of ten. Smaller orders will come loose, but the Britannia coin capsules can be ordered to protect them. Limited to just 5,000 coins.

Each coin in the series will represent the Bond films best known from that particular decade. The Bond of the 1970s coin features the memorable amphibious ‘Wet Nellie’ craft,  best known for featuring in classic movie The Spy Who Loved Me. The flexible craft took the form of a specialized Lotus Esprit S1. It was one of the distinctive vehicles customized for Bond and driven both on land and underwater during the movie. The car was able to transform and operate as a submarine for undersea travel and combat sequences. Its unique design and aquatic capabilities made it a memorable part of the set pieces and gadgetry featured in that Bond film adventure.

Coins representing each of the decades will share fantastic design features, tying together the entire collection. The featured film image will sit on a background of all the Bond film titles released in that decade. This will then be surrounded on the coin reverse by the classic image of the gun barrel featured at the start of each feature film. The outer edge then repeats the key specification details of the coin, including year f issue, metal, purity and the title ‘Bond of the 70s’.

The obverse of the coin features the now familiar official coinage portrait of King Charles III, as depicted by designer Martin Jennings.

Each of the six coins will be produced in both 999.9 purity gold and 999 purity silver versions. Coins are fully licensed products in partnership with EON Productions Limited and Danjaq.

Like the 1oz Britannia gold coin, the Gold James Bond coins boast a £100 face value, qualifying them as Capital Gains Tax free. For this reason and it’s relative scarcity, we expect this gold coin to be a very popular investment choice.

Our Expert Opinion

We always get excited with any new Royal Mint coin release. The Mint’s 1,100 years of experience and expertise guarantees production quality, while design is always innovative and compelling. The popularity of James Bond films will no doubt fuel significant interest in these limited edition coins from both collectors and shrewd investors.

Its modest premium, quantity discounts and tax efficiency mean we expect the gold investment community to snap this coin up in large quantities to further diversify their portfolios of Gold Sovereigns and Britannias.
