This 2012 Set is no longer available from the mint.
Lovers of The Hobbit will not want to miss this opportunity! This beautiful Silver set features six of the main characters of the beloved novel, each minted in .999 fine Proof Silver. Bilbo Baggins, Gandalf and Thorin Oakenshield, heir to the dwarven kingdom, are joined by Radagast, an eccentric wizard, Elrond, one of the wisest elves in Middle-earth, and the mysterious creature Gollum.
The reverse of each 1 oz coin features an image of one of the characters, surrounded by the words “Middle-earth” and “New Zealand,” written in both English and Dwarvish, J.R.R. Tolkien’s invented language. Each obverse features the Ian Rank-Broadley likeness of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
Each set of six coins comes in an intricately carved wooden box featuring “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” as well as the silhouettes of the traveling party. The collectibility of each coin, and the set as a whole, is further enhanced by the very low mintage, so be sure to get this set while you can!
