New Zealand Issued Stamps on Hobbit Day

newzealand-hobbit-stampNew Zealand is famous around the world as the home of Middle-earth – thanks to The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings trilogies. The legacy of these iconic films lives on through New Zealand Post’s commemorative stamps – which are available together for the first time in this stunning publication.

To really set this book apart from the rest, inside you’ll also find a never seen before stamp. This exclusive stamp features the ‘One Ring’ embossed in 22 carat gold foil. The ‘One Ring’ is at the heart of both The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, so it’s fitting that this powerful symbol features on its own New Zealand stamp for the first time.The round $10 stamp sits within a miniature sheet featuring the iconic map of Middle-earth.
