The Royal Mint has unveiled a new gold coin as part of its new James Bond collection that is a one-of-a-kind collectors item.
The seven-kilo gold coin has a face value of £7,000 ($A13,655) and features an engraving of an Aston Martin DB5 with its famous BMT 216A license plate surrounded by a gun barrel.
There is no word yet on what the coin could retail at but people interested are being directed to call the mint to discuss.
The coin is the largest coin with the highest face value to ever be produced by the Royal Mint in its 1100 year history.
The piece is part of a coin and gold bar collection launched ahead of the 25th James Bond film, No Time To Die starring Daniel Craig in his last outing as the MI6 agent.
The collection also includes a smaller two-kilo gold coin with the denomination of £2,000 ($A3901) but has a recommended retail price of £129,990 ($A253,577).
