Single $4.60 'The Ring is Mine' gummed stamp.

With his quest nearly over, Frodo struggles against the Ring’s seductive allure. Unable to release it into the fires of Mount Doom, Frodo cries ‘the Ring is mine’, prompting a fight to the death with Gollum. Mount Ngauruhoe, in the Tongariro district, provided a perfect double for Mount Doom, but the documentary shows a special table that Wētā Workshop built for the shots where lava flows down the side of the erupting volcano.

The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King 20th Anniversary celebrates the talent of Kiwi filmmakers and the films’ legacy in Aotearoa New Zealand. Click here for more information about the stamp issue.
