A beautifully crafted full-weight 50,000 HK$ casino-chip from EON's production of 'Skyfall', Daniel Craig's third outing as James Bond and certainly one of his very best, along with his début outing, 'Casino Royale'.
The Bond movies are known for their exquisite production design, and this wonderfully articulated casino chip is a testament to the craftsmanship and attention to detail for which the franchise is internationally famous. It appeared in one of the movie's most memorable scenes - the sequence where Bond travels to the treacherous 'Floating Dragon' Casino in Macao to uncover the conspiracy surrounding 'Patrice', the lethal assassin for hire, who had so memorably challenged Bond in the film's iconic opening sequence.
Directed by Sam Mendes (1917, Road to Perdition, American Beauty) and co-starring Judi Dench, Javier Bardem, Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw, Bérénice Marlohe, Ralph Fiennes and Albert Finney, 'Skyfall' premiered at London's Royal Albert Hall on 23 October, 2012, and was released in the UK on 26th October and in North America on 9th November. Its highly acclaimed release celebrated the 50th Anniversary of the 007 film franchise, which had begun in 1962 with 'Dr No', starring Sean Connery as James Bond.
Skyfall won a number of prestigious industry accolades, including two Academy Awards, two BAFTAs and two Grammys. It became the first James Bond film to gross over 1.1 billion dollars worldwide and is still the most successful James Bond film of all time!
