This three-coin set is part of the extensive James Bond Collection issued by the Royal Mint in 2020.
The James Bond series focuses on a fictional British Secret Service agent created in 1953 by writer Ian Fleming, who featured him in twelve novels and two short-story collections. Since Fleming's death in 1964, eight other authors have written authorised Bond novels or novelisations. The character - also known by his code number 007 - has also been adapted for television, radio, comic strip, video games and film.
The reverse designs of the coins are a collaboration between Matt Dent and Christian Davies.
The set was announced in March 2020 and available for pre-purchase, for delivery in October 2020. Each coin is in a separate presentation folder, and the whole set includes a case for storing the folders in.
