‘Witcher’ character Geralt of Rivia gets limited-edition stamps and envelopes in Poland

witcher stamps poland stamp
Poland’s largest postal network, Poczta Polska, is set to release a stamp featuring the famous monster slayer Geralt of Rivia. It will be a limited run that begins circulation on Friday, so if you are a stamp collector or a real fan of The Witcher series, you will need to be quick to grab one.

Geralt hails from The Witcher series of books and games, though in this instance his likeness will be drawn from a CD Projekt Red game, which released its most recent game in the series, The Witcher III: Wild Hunt, in 2015. The stamps’ run will be limited to 180,000 copies.

While it might seem surprising to see a stamp feature such a character, The Witcher originates from a series of novels and short stories by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski, so the character does have a little more cultural significance there.

To go along with the Geralt stamp, Poczta Polska is also releasing a limited edition envelope. It features a fiery interpretation of Geralt’s Witcher medallion, which warns him of danger and signifies his status as a Witcher for hire. While there are many medallions in The Witcher’s universe, the wolf’s head is one that each Witcher acquires after passing the Trial of the Grasses, where three young acolytes consume a concoction of herbs and only one survives.

This is an envelope for die-hard fans and it is quite a companion for the stamp, though it is so detailed we would feel bad sending it knowing there is a chance for it to become battered after sending it through the mail. It has certainly been a long time since we posted anything about stationary as cool as an envelope and stamp combination as this one.
