The second coin to be released in the James Bond 007 collection is the much anticipated Pay Attention 007 2020 UK Quarter-Ounce Gold Proof Coin. Following the release of the first James Bond coin released earlier in 2020, where the iconic Aston Martin DB5 was celebrated, this new release showcases the futuristic, technologically advanced “Wet Nellie” car-slash-submarine.
The James Bond films are renowned for the gadgets and technology used at a time where such luxuries and ideas were non-existent yet. We see many gadgets that had audiences gasping in amazement, that have now come to be part of our everyday life. Such as the biometric fingerprint detection shown in Diamonds Are Forever. Bond was always a step or two ahead of his time, with his suave appearance and effortless wins, he drew in audiences around the world with his wild adventures.
The ‘Wet Nellie’ submarine car was a custom-made car that had the ability to turn into a submarine and emerge effortlessly into water.
