CoinGold Five Ounces 2022 James Bond 60th Anniversary

The Tuvaluan Dollar is the currency of Tuvalu - a small nation in the Pacific Ocean. Tuvalu has never had banknotes of its own, and has been issuing coins since 1976; these circulate together with coins of the Australian Dollar, which is also legal tender in the country, and to which the Tuvaluan Dollar is pegged.

The Australian Perth Mint issues a large variety of non-circulating legal tender coins under the authority of Tuvalu, including in the very large five troy ounces of gold format (abbreviated as 5 oz). These are not bullion as they are priced at a premium and are targeted at collectors who appreciate them for their artistic merit and collectable value and not just for their precious metal content.

This coin is part of a long running James Bond-themed series by the Perth Mint, and marks 60 Years of James Bond. It is also the first five-ounce gold coin in the series.

The Mint says about it:
British Secret Service agent James Bond was brought to cinema screens for the first time by Albert R. ‘Cubby’ Broccoli and Harry Saltzman in 1962. In 25 thrilling movies over the past 60 years, Bond has overcome some of the big screen’s most notorious villains - including bullion smuggler Auric Goldfinger, hitman Francisco Scaramanga, steel-toothed assassin Jaws, and arch-nemesis Ernst Stavro Blofeld.

Obverse
Tuvalu / Gold Five Ounces 2022 James Bond 60th Anniversary - obverse photo

The obverse of the coin shows the crowned mature head of Queen Elizabeth II facing right (her effigy known as the "Fourth Portrait"). The Queen wears the "Girls of Great Britain and Ireland" diamond tiara, a wedding gift from Queen Mary (Her Majesty's grandmother) in 1947 - which she also has on the Machin and the Gottwald portraits.

In small letters below the head, the artist's initials IRB (for Ian Rank-Broadley).

Around the effigy is the monarch's legend, the date of issue and the value: QUEEN ELIZABETH II 5 oz 9999 Au 2021 TUVALU 500 DOLLARS.

The inscription around the rim also incorporates the precious metal content. "5 oz 9999 Au" means "five troy ounces of 99.99% gold".
