New Zealand Releasing “Hobbit” Coins And Stamps

With Peter Jackson having filmed his Lord Of The Rings and the upcoming The Hobbit films in New Zealand, this latest news item probably makes sense. On November 1, the country will release commemorative coins and stamps based off of J.R.R. Tolkien’s characters. While the coins can be used as currency, it’s probably not practical. The most expensive coins made of pure gold will cost fans $3,020 but will only have a face value of NZ$10. The stamps however, should be much more affordable.
