19 October 2016 - Lord of the Rings - One Stamp to Rule Them All.
Designs by: Richard Payne, New Zealand Post, Wellington. Printer and process: Southern Colour Print Ltd by offset lithography.
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, and each miniature sheet is individually numbered. Unnumbered versions of this miniature sheet are available individually in limited quantities. There is no first day cover for this issue.
