All of our regular regulars can’t help but be aware of the Chibi juggernaut. A Japanese concept called Super-Deformed (SD), it involves the depiction of characters with small bodies, and big heads. Other producers have also issued similar SD coins, like The Coin Company, and LPM Group, but joining that group earlier this year was the Perth Mint
They started with The Simpsons coins, released under the banner of ‘Minted Mini’, and recently branched out into their 007 franchise with a James Bond coin. Now they’re back with a second 007 coin, and it’s a very cool one. One of the most iconic scenes in Bond history is the sight of Honey Ryder, played by Ursula Andress, walking out of the sea, carrying a seashell, and wearing a white bikini. This was from the first 007 film, Dr. No.
The mini is superb, perfectly capturing the character in this form. Struck in an ounce of 0.9999 silver, and around 36 mm tall, it comes excellently presented in a frame that makes display easy. It has a mintage of 2,500 pieces, and is available now.
