Daniel Craig's blue swim trunks from a scene in the James Bond film "Casino Royale" are among 007-related items being auctioned for charity.

Christie's will offer 50 pieces of James Bond memorabilia in a live auction next Friday, the 50th anniversary of the release of the first 007 movie "Dr No" which premiered Oct. 5, 1962, the Associated Press reported.

The most expensive item is an Aston Martin driven by Craig in "Quantum of Solace," valued at between $160,000 and $230,000.

There is also a one-third scale model of an Aston Martin DB5 used in the filming of the latest Bond Film "Skyfall," due out in October.

The auction is to raise funds for charities including UNICEF, according to the AP.

Actor Roger Moore, who played James Bond in such films as "The Man with the Golden Gun," "The Spy Who Loved Me" and "Octopussy," is a Goodwill Ambassador for Unicef.

Other products include a one-third scale model of an Aston Martin DB5 used in the filming of "Skyfall." 

All items are on sale online between September 28 and October 8, with ten of the star items reserved for the live auction on October 5, Global James Bond Day, in South Kensington in London, The Telegraph reported.
