Ever wanted to send mail from the Mushroom Kingdom? Well now National Japan Post has the next best thing. From 28th June this year post offices across the Japan will be offering a new selection of stamps commemorating the Super Mario series. The stamps will be sold for 82 Yen (around 56 pence) and each will feature either Mario, Luigi, Peach, Yoshi or Toad in a variety of mail-like scenarios. 

A neat bonus is that if you're lucky enough to be the recipient of one of these stamps, the Post Office will also add a special celebration post mark. Collectors visiting Japan may want to look at picking these up as over time as the value may increase, along with the obvious reason of them looking pretty cool.
