Immortalizing Film Popularity in Stamps

Immortalizing film popularity

Many movies around the world have been immortalized in special stamp editions. Designed to give film fans the opportunity to collect a piece of cinematic history, these intriguing items celebrate and chronicle some of the most memorable motion pictures of all time.

Recently, New Zealand Post announced that it will add to the collection of famous films on stamps. This latest issue includes a series of stamps based on the move The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. Six individual stamps comprise the collection featuring popular characters from the movie including Bilbo Baggins, Gollum, Gandalf, Thorin, Oakenshield, Radagast, and Elrond. The stamp collection is accompanied by a coin collection comprised of legal tender, silver, and gold varieties featuring scenes from the movie.

Both a stamp and coin collection are also currently available from the yet to be released second movie in The Hobbit trilogy, The Desolation of Smaug.

Do you think precious metal coin collections offered for sale along side a related stamp release will generate enough interest to enhance revenue?

    Depending on the purchase price — meaning if they don’t set the price too prohibitively high — I believe Yes, it could/would possibly enhance sales.

    I agree with Andrew. If the price point is reasonable I believe it would attract collectors. The 50 states stamps and quarters were fun for people to collect.
