Today, you have the chance to get 1 oz Gold British James Bond Diamonds Are Forever Bars online from Provident Metals.
The feature film Diamonds Are Forever was released in 1971 and marked the seventh production of a James Bond film by Eon Productions. This marked the sixth appearance of Connery in the franchise and his first since 1967. He had previously declined to reprise his role in the 1969 release of On Her Majestys Secret Service.
For the obverse design of the 1 oz Gold British James Bond Diamonds Are Forever Bar, the mint features its logo at the top. The coat of arms of the Royal Mint is set at the top of the design field along with an inscription of THE ROYAL MINT. The middle of the field features the 007 emblem complete with the handgun design within the number 7. The inscriptions at the bottom of the bar include 1 OZ 999.9 FINE GOLD.
In the reverse design of Gold British James Bond Diamonds Are Forever Bars, the Royal Mint offers an image of cascading diamonds that fall from the background into the foreground, getting larger as they do so. The field includes an inscription of DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER, with that last word repeating several times in an ever-smaller font.
Sean Connery was the original James Bond, taking on the role in the first five consecutive films in the franchise. After George Lazenby declined to return following On Her Majestys Secret Service, the directors and producers auditioned other actors for the part, the studio at United Artists wanted Connery back and offered him a record sum for the part. This was Connerys sixth and final appearance in Eon Productions Bond films, but not his last overall. He later featured in 1983s Never Say Never Again. This was his seventh turn as Bond, tying him with Roger Moore for the most all-time.
1 oz Gold British James Bond Diamonds Are Forever Bars are available to purchase with sealed protective blistercards. The packaging includes a black, James Bond-themed card inside that has the identifying hallmarks of the bar and a unique serial number.
