Montblanc Pens – The Limited Editions

In the “Digital Age” pen collecting provides a unique collecting experience that provides both visual and tactile rewards.  My interest in Mont Blanc Limited Edition Pens started 22 years ago in 2001 where later that year I started this website to share the fascination with these unique collectible pens and help to connect buyers and sellers together.

You can view the images of some of the older edition below and click through for more information. Unfortunately due to a battle with cancer in the past, I hadn’t had the free time or energy to update the site for the most recent years. I have finally decided that it is best to find a new owner in the coming weeks near the end of 2023.  If you are interested in purchasing this domain and website you can get further details by

Where To Purchase

Buying Montblanc pens and watches can sometimes be a risky business. Many sellers fail to disclose all details that effect the value of the pen such as the fact a ballpoint was converted from a mechanical pencil (creating two ballpoints with the same serial number) and numerous other small details.
Some sellers may even unknowingly sell a virtually identical replica. I recommend only buying from a reputable Mont Blanc Pens Dealer or from a well-known collector known as being a reliable and trustworthy expert. I’ve also had going dealings overseas from As a last resort you can always check the Official Montblanc Site for new releases but expect to pay more than you would (list price) than from an Independent Dealer.

The Collections

Writers Series

Released every fall since 1992, usually consisting of a fountain pen, ballpoint pen, and 3-piece set (with mechanical pencil), each issue is themed after a famous writer and comes in a matching book display case.


Patron of the Arts Series

Released every year since 2001, each release commemorates famous individuals making great contributions to the arts and culture.


Special Edition Series

This is the series of limited pens that don’t fit neatly into a themed category. They range from Asian themed pieces (which are quite popular) to Anniversary Editions. The Special Edition Series typically has more limited production than the Patron of the Arts Series wich typically make them more highly prized.


Donation Series

Technically the Donation Series is a Special Edition and not necessarily considered a true Limited Edition because not all series pieces carried individual serial numbers (some do.)


75th Anniversary vs 100 Years

In 1999, Montblanc released their 75th Anniversary Special Edition (appointed with yellow gold) and the more valuable, serial numbered Limited Edition (in rose gold) limited to 1,924 pieces each.
