The character of James Bond was created by author Ian Fleming. The first Bond novel, “Casino Royale,” was published in 1953, and it introduced the iconic British spy, James Bond. The first James Bond film, “Dr. No,” was released in 1962, starring Sean Connery as James Bond. The success of this film set the stage for the long-running film series. With six decades of history in the record books, James Bond is honored by the Royal Mint. Now, 2024 1 oz British Gold Six Decades of 007 Coins are available for purchase online at JM Bullion.

Sean Connery played James Bond in seven films, establishing himself as the original and, for many, the definitive Bond. His portrayal laid the foundation for the character’s cinematic identity. Roger Moore took over the role of James Bond after Sean Connery and played the character in seven films from 1973 to 1985. His Bond films often had a lighter, more humorous tone.
The James Bond franchise has evolved over the years to reflect changing cultural and social attitudes. It has consistently been a major influence on popular culture, with its music, fashion, and espionage themes leaving a lasting impact on audiences worldwide.
