The Design and the Designers
The coin’s reverse design was a collaboration between Christian Davies and Matt Dent, partners at graphic design agency Bison Bison. This is Christian’s first coin design project, but Matt has created several coin designs for The Royal Mint, including the 50p coincelebrating 50 years of the World Wildlife Fund and the £2 coin that honoured Charles Dickens in 2012. He also created the picture-puzzle style Royal Arms design that featured on the circulating coins from the 1p to the £1 introduced in 2008.
“There is so much that you could draw on – different films, villains, technology. We decided very early on to focus on iconic imagery from the Bond films; the elements people would recognise instantly.”
“Giving a sense that the car was underwater whilst keeping the design simple was tricky, so including telltale bubbles and setting the car at a slight angle waskey.”
