16. Harry Potter’s Wooden Wand, $80
Though it isn’t the Elder Wand, Harry Potter’s first wand is special. Purchased at Ollivander’s after flying off the shelf towards him, the unique core continued to cement the prophecy that Harry Potter was special. The wand comes in a box just like in the books, and can be displayed anywhere.
15. Harry Potter Magical Creature: Fawkes 1oz Silver Coin, $109

Rarest Harry Potter Collectibles
These Harry Potter collectibles are only for the highest of bidders. These have gone for thousands of dollars, and are prized possessions of the Harry Potter community.
10. Harry Potter’s Acceptance Letter, $4,000-$6,000
Ah, to get an acceptance letter to Hogwarts when you turn 12. Years later I was still wishing to get one of those letters, but I guess the muggle world will have to suffice. Hundreds of these letters flew into the Dursley’s house during the first film (Philosopher’s Stone) and now garner a hefty price when sold. They are estimated to sell at $4,000-$6,000.
9. The Elder Wand, $8,750
One of the three Deathly Hallows, the elder wand was a prized possession for several characters, including Voldemort, Harry Potter, and Dumbledore. The prop used in the movies also gained magical powers outside of the franchise when in 2013 it was sold for $8750 in California; double the original evaluation price.
8. Harry Potter’s Glasses, $20,000
Other than the scar, the glasses are the most recognizable feature of the young wizard. Though there were several pairs used on the sets of Harry Potter, especially as the actor Daniel Radcliffe grew older, they still are a prized Harry Potter collectible. One pair from the first movie was sold for $20,000 in 2015.
7. Sirius Black’s Grey Linen Overcoat, $17,000
One of the most beloved characters in the series, especially for Harry himself, was Sirius Black. Godfather and former prisoner of Azkaban, he is both a connection to Harry’s past and his present life as a wizard. This specific overcoat was worn by Black (Gary Oldman) in Prisoner of Azkaban, complete with a suede collar and wooden buttons. This is the perfect Harry Potter collectible for those who enjoy fashion or costumes, but its price tag at $17,000 the last time it was sold makes this a prize for those with lots of money.
6. ‘Lumos Maxima’ Sterling Silver Charm Bracelet, $26,000
Though this Harry Potter rare collectible was not from the movies, it’s importance is still quite great. Created to mark five years since Rowling’s illustrated The Tales of Beedle the Bard, this bracelet with several charms was made to raise funds for Rowling’s charity Lumos. It sold for $26,000 at Sotheby’s in 2013.
5. Harry Potter’s Wand Harry Potter Rare Collectibles, $40,516
You may think we are referring to the original wand Potter was given at Ollivander’s but this wand is specifically from The Deathly Hallows Parts 1 & 2. Used by Radcliffe, this rare Harry Potter collectible was in the final battle between Potter and Voldemort. It was sold in 2021 in Los Angeles for $40,516.
4. Original Philosopher’s Stone Cover Illustration, $107,184
Created by Thomas Taylor for the first edition of The Philosopher’s Stone, this illustration was the only one by Taylor for the whole series. The illustration itself was sold in 2001 by a private collector in London for an astonishing $107,184.
8 Harry Potter Books Worth Money
3. J.K. Rowling’s Chair, $394,000
Having a chair on this list may seem a little weird at first, but there is a lot of importance to an old chair. Rowling herself used this chair to pen Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets – the first two books of the series. She later decorated the entire chair in words and the signature lightning bolts and it went to auction and sold for $394,000 in 2016.
2. Harry Potter’s Broomstick, $1 million
Quidditch is one of those things from the Harry Potter movies I wish could be a real sport. How cool would it be to fly around in the air searching for the Snitch? Harry Potter’s broomstick, complete with an “H” etching and “Harry Potter” engraving, is the perfect rare collectible for Harry Potter fans. It was purchased a few years ago for $1 million.
1. The Tales of Beedle the Bard, $2.44 million
Even though J.K. Rowling has since come out with an illustrated version of this book mentioned during Harry Potter, we are referring to the first original copies. With only seven copies made it makes sense why they are priced so high. Each book that was printed is bound in Moroccan leather and decorated with silver ornaments and semi-precious stones. One went to auction a few years ago and was bought by an Amazon company for $2.44 million.
What is the rarest Harry Potter collectible?
The hardcover 1st edition 1st printing of the Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone novel is also known as the “Holy Grail” for collectors, as only a few hundred copies were printed.
What is the rarest Hogwarts Legacy item?
In the Hogwarts Legacy game, the rarest item is the Standard Gear (Grey Rarity). It is only obtained once during character creation, instead of other gear that can be obtained in multiple locations in the game.
What is the most iconic Harry Potter spell?
The Patronus Charm, also known as “Expecto Patronum” is the most iconic spell, said by Harry Potter in the Prisoner of Azkaban.
What are the three most powerful objects in the wizarding world?
The three Deathly Hallows–the invisibility cloak, the Resurrection Stone, and the Elder Wand–are the most powerful objects and coveted by several powerful wizards in the book series.
Harry Potter rare collectibles are for all ages, but sometimes it’s just better to see them on a screen, especially with their large price tags. These are only just a few of the Harry Potter collectibles you can find, with several others being the books themselves.
