A charity auction for the James Bond film anniversary raised over 168 million

Celebrating sixty is a huge milestone not only for people, but also for their creations. The agent 007 film franchise will celebrate such an anniversary on October 5 this year – exactly 60 years since the premiere of Dr. Well, the first “Bond” movie. Sean Connery played an agent in it.

Christie’s auction house together with EON Productions are organizing a charity auction on this occasion, whose physical event takes place on Wednesday, September 28. It is possible to contribute online until October 5th.

The biggest draw of Wednesday’s auction is what makes the movie “Bond” such a compelling hobby for car lovers – a replica of the Aston Martin DB5 action car from last year’s No Time to Die. The new owner auctioned it off for an incredible £2,922,000, which is 80.6 million crowns.

This amount is almost half of the total proceeds from the auction, which was 6,103,500 pounds, that is, 168.45 million crowns. Other notable contributions to the pack include a Fabergé egg stand, encrusted with Swarovski crystals and made for the film Octopussy. He found the owner for 327,600 pounds, that is 9.04 million crowns, or the Aston Martin V8 from the film No Time to Die, sold for 630 thousand pounds (17.39 million crowns).

Other results are under half a million pounds, such as the Triumph Scrambler 1200 XE motorcycle for £138,600 (3.83 million crowns) or the Omega Seamaster Diver 300M 007 Edition watch for £226,800 (6.26 million crowns).

All proceeds from each item go to a separate charity account. The golden egg raised money for UNICEF, the aforementioned Triumph motorcycle for Severn Hospitals, which operates in West England.
