Royal Mail released a new collectible set of 15 stamps this month, celebrating the success of the Harry Potter film series!

The stamps (originally released in October) include character portraits of Harry, Hermione, Ron, Neville and Ginny, as well as several Hogwarts professors, Professor Sprout, Professor Slughorn, Professor Trelawney, Professor Lupin and Professor Snape. A few magical modes of transport are included in the set, too: a Portkey (in the form of the Triwizard Cup), the Hogwarts Express, the flying Ford Anglia, Sirius / Hagrid’s flying motorbike, and the Knight Bus. The stamps are available in various souvenir bundles (£35.99) and mounted and framed sheets (£39.99):

The set includes hidden details under ultraviolet light, as well as Wizarding World inspired backgrounds, and the ‘1st’ in the style of Harry’s lightning scar.

‘Sirius’ collectors can now purchase a Limited Edition Diagon Alley or Hogwarts Medal Cover, both priced at £19.95. The collection contains a special silver proof medal from The Royal Mint, showing the Harry Potter logo on one side, and the Hogwarts crest on the other in the Hogwarts cover, and a Galleon on the Diagon Alley cover. Only 15,000 of these have been printed, and each item is individually numbered.
