Silver Two Ounces 2020 James Bond, Shaken not Stirred, Coin from United Kingdom
CoinSilver Two Ounces 2020 James Bond, Shaken not Stirred

Like many other mints, the Royal Mint issues bullion coins in precious metals, having much higher intrinsic value than their face value. The two ounce (2 oz) silver coins are denominated as Five Pounds (£5).

The coins are legal tender but are not intended for circulation. They are targeted at bullion investors or collectors who appreciate the special editions as pieces of art. The coins are typically "one-year" types usually issued in parallel with smaller denominations with the same reverse designs.

This two-ounce silver commemorative coin 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 design of the coin is a collaboration between Matt Dent and Christian Davies; this is the first Royal Mint commission for Christian Davies, while Matt Dent has completed several commissions including the 2012 Charles Dickens £2 coin, the 2011 World Wildlife Fund 50p coin and the suite of reverse designs for the definitive circulating coins from the 1p to the £1, released in 2008.

Within the James Bond Collection, this coin is the third and final part of a three-coin series with complementing designs which, put next to each other, make up the 007 logo. The two-ounce coin is part of the "Inspired Innovation" selection, differing from the other sizes in the enhanced strike which can be seen in the "007" element of the design: the textured finish is replaced with a micro-engraved repeating list of the Bond movie titles.

Obverse
United Kingdom / Silver Two Ounces 2020 James Bond, Shaken not Stirred - obverse photo

The obverse of the coin depicts the crowned old head of Queen Elizabeth II facing right, wearing the Royal Diamond Diadem crown worn for her Coronation (effigy known as the "Fifth Portrait").

Running continuously around the effigy is the monarch's legend and the date: ELIZABETH II · D · G · REG · F · D · 5 POUNDS · 2020 ·. Translated from Latin: Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God, Queen, Defender of the Faith, followed by the value and denomination in English and the year.

In small letters below the head, the artist's initials J.C (for Jody Clark).

Reverse

The reverse shows James Bond's iconic jacket and bow tie. Overlaid on that, the silhouette of a gun, the last part of the 007 logo. Within that, microtext listing the titles of 25 James Bond movies.

Below the exergue line, the inscription SHAKEN NOT STIRRED, James Bond's catchphrase describing his preference for the preparation of his martini cocktail.

The designers' initials, CD-MD (for Christian Davies and Matt Dent) are around right in the exergue.

The face value and date of issue are on the obverse.
