The Hobbit Stamps and Coins Revealed…
New Zealand Post today unveils its designs for the world’s only legal tender coins and stamps to celebrate the upcoming film The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey movie - with the first in the trilogy set to hit screens in December.
Sir Ian McKellen, who reprises his role as wizard Gandalf the Grey in the series, is depicted on a new stamp, which he said captured the essence of his character.
“The pointy hat, the beard and the illuminated staff - the $1.90 stamp is pure Gandalf.”
Each coin is inscribed in English and Dwarvish and comes in a collectable folder, case or box with an individually numbered certificate of authenticity.
Gold coins, $1 face value: Priced at $29.90 - depicts Bilbo Baggins, in the presence of Thorin Oakenshield, signing the contract which will lead him on his adventures; a set of three others also available for $85 showing Gandalf, Thorin Oakenshield and dwarves.
Silver coins with gold plating, $1 face value: Priced at $149 - shows Bilbo Baggins setting out at the start of his epic quest.
Silver coin set, $1 face value: Priced at $889 for a set of six. Limited to 1000 sets and shows Bilbo Baggins, Gandalf, Gollum, Thorin Oakenshield, Elrond and Radagast.
Premium gold coins, $10 face value: Either a single coin depicting Bilbo Baggins, priced at $3695, with only 1000 available; or a set of three for $10,995, limited to just 250 sets and depicting Bilbo Baggins, Gandalf and Thorin Oakenshield.
