Rare - The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey First Day Cover Stamps 2012


Finally, with the long anticipated wait for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, we can offer these First Day Cover Stamps


Issued in New Zealand, the location for 'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, these new stamps are presented on this superb collectable First Day Cover.


The cover features detailed images of the characters from the film. Each of the six stamps - featuring Bilbo Baggins, Gollum, Gandalf, Thorin Oakenshield, Radagast the brown and Elrond – they have been postmarked in New Zealand on their first day of issue with the Hobbit Logo


Don’t miss out on this tremendous 'The Hobbit' collecting opportunity. When 'The Lord of the Rings' first day covers were issued, they were met with unprecedented demand and where only available for a very short time


New Zealand is home to Middle-earth once again, with the release of the first of three films based on The Hobbit, entitled The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. It's been 9 years since the last issue of Lord of the Rings stamps. It's become clear that this issue will be incredibly popular and some items will sell out very quickly. Once items sell out the prices are sure to rise. Secure yours now!


Self-Adhesive First Day  Cover


70c - Bilbo Baggins

Like all Hobbits, Bilbo Baggins is fond of his comfortable existence, but his life changes forever when he is unexpectedly swept away from his home in the Shire to embark upon an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor


$1.40 - Gollum

Once a hobbit-like creature named Sméagol, Gollum’s body and soul have been poisoned by the power of a small, plain, gold ring that he has kept hidden deep in a dark cavern within the Misty Mountains


$1.90 - Gandalf

One of the most powerful Wizards in all Middle-earth, Gandalf the Grey joins the quest to reclaim the Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor and the great treasure that lies within its stone halls from a fire-breathing dragon, Smaug the Terrible


$2.10 - Thorin Oakenshield

A strong, fearless fighter and respected leader of The Company of Dwarves, Thorin is determined to reclaim his homeland and destroy the beast that brought such misery upon his people


$2.40 – Radagast the Brown

Forgetful, easily distracted and quite eccentric, Radagast is more comfortable talking to animals than he is to people. A fellow Wizard and friend of Gandalf the Grey, Radagast is one of the guardians of the great forests of Middle-earth


$2.90 - Elrond

One of the wisest and most ancient of the Elves remaining in Middle-earth, Elrond is Master of Rivendell, the Last Homely House East of the Sea. During The Company of Thorin Oakensield’s brief stay, Elrond provides shelter and supplies to Bilbo and the Dwarves
