To celebrate the 50th anniversary of James Bond on film, Christie's is auctioning off a special set of Bond memorabilia - with all proceeds going to UNICEF and other charitable causes.

Sir Roger Moore, who played Bond from 1973 to 1985, has worked as a Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF for over twenty years.

Fifty lots will be up for sale, including Jane Seymour's playing card set from Sir Roger's first Bond film, Live and Let Die, and a golden bullet buckle worn by Scaramanga in The Man With the Golden Gun - valued at up to £1,500.

The lots can be viewed at Christie's from 29 September to 5 October.

"I hope fans will be inspired to bid as every penny raised will help to transform children’s lives," said Sir Roger.

He added: "By supporting UNICEF you really do become the emergency food supply in Kenya, the life-saving vaccination in the Congo. You become the caring hand and the protector of all children and their rights."

Guns are bad, kids. Unless, of course, they're fictional golden guns being auctioned off for UNICEF.
