Games were played by ancient civilisations as competitive recreation and represent one of humanity’s oldest forms of social interaction. Evidence for the existence of dice as throwable cubes with numbered sides indicates they were made in Egypt at least as early as 2000 BCE. The first known board game, The Royal Game of Ur, originated around 4,600 years ago in Mesopotamia. By the beginning of the 10th century, playing cards had been invented in China. Many traditional games, which have their roots in days long gone, have stood the test of time. Despite modern electronic alternatives, they offer entertaining group activities strongly associated with joyous times, including Christmas and summer vacations. Enjoyed by children and regarded with fondness by older generations, they continue to inspire happy and memorable family occasions. Firmly ingrained in our cultural practices while helping to develop mental agility and strategic thinking, old-style games are inexpensive, easy to master, and above all, fun.

Created by former intelligence officer and author Ian Fleming in 1953, James Bond is a fearless, charismatic and deadly British Secret Service agent with a ‘licence to kill’. Also known by the codename 007, he has been portrayed by six actors – Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig – in 25 thrilling movies released by EON Productions since 1962.

In Thunderball, released in 1965, Bond takes on high-ranking SPECTRE operative Emilio Largo, who holds NATO to ransom by hijacking a Vulcan bomber carrying two nuclear weapons. Played by Sean Connery, 007 must find the bombs hidden underwater in the Bahamas before Largo succeeds in extorting £100 million or carries out his threat to unleash nuclear havoc.

The coin’s reverse depicts a coloured portrayal of James Bond in a desperate underwater fight. Based on an official movie poster, he is locked in combat with a with a knife-wielding scuba diver. Included on the reverse are the iconic gun barrel graphic from the franchise’s signature opening sequence, the famous 007 gun logo and the inscription ‘THUNDERBALL’.

Individual releases from the James Bond Official 25-Coin Collection are each housed in a 007 branded case with a transparent acrylic top and a movie themed shipper. Each coin is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity featuring poster artwork.
