GOLDFINGER auction raises money for NSPCC

Posted 17.09.2014

More than £136,000 was raised for the NSPCC in the 50th Anniversary GOLDFINGER online auction. The lots in the auction, run by Christie’s, included a one-off, gold plated third scale scale replica of 007’s Aston Martin DB5 which sold for £55,000 (photographed with GOLDFINGER actress Shirley Eaton) and an 18K yellow gold Omega Seamaster ‘Aqua Terra’ wristwatch which went for £70,000. Other lots included a first edition GOLDFINGER book (£2,800), an original GOLDFINGER British cinema poster and soundtrack LP signed by Dame Shirley Bassey (£3,500) and a special gold edition of Taschen’s The James Bond Archives signed by Daniel Craig (£5,500). The final total raised was £136,800.
“It’s an extraordinary exciting amount of money,” says Mark Wood, Chairman of the NSPCC. “The universal appeal of 007 is a story of good versus evil and that’s what the NSPCC is here for, our belief is every person has a right to a childhood. So on behalf of the NSPCC I would like to thank everyone who placed a bid on the items.”
