December 2021 marked 20 years since the release of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. A fantasy story of epic proportions, the film invited a new generation into the world of J.R.R. Tolkien's beloved mid-century novels. The Lord of the Rings trilogy was filmed entirely in New Zealand, whose unique landscapes provided a bounty of spectacular scenery. One of modern cinema's greatest achievements, the film earned 13 Academy Award nominations and grossed US$897.7 million worldwide, putting New Zealand on the map as a beautiful place to visit and a brilliant location for film making.

This set of coins features three members of the Fellowship - Frodo, Boromir and Gandalf. The Frodo coin depicts the iconic moment in the Prancing Pony when Frodo puts on the ring for the first time and faces the Eye of Sauron and the dangerous reality of his task. The Boromir coin captures the moment when he holds the shattered sword Narsil under the watchful gaze of Aragorn, who will eventually reclaim the throne of Gondor from Boromir’s stewarding family. Finally, Gandalf appears on the third coin, depicted in the moment at the beginning of the film when he arrives in Hobbiton and meets Frodo. On the obverse of each 0.999 silver coin, New Zealand is acknowledged as the home of Middle-earth with the fictional land’s name.
