See the Rebbe’s Igros, vol. 18, p. 236, where the Rebbe addresses the idea of a stamp with the Alter Rebbe’s picture: “I think it is out of the question, for in the end, the stamps end up in… besides the unavoidable issue of the stamp and the picture being hit [by the posal machines]…”

there is no substantial recorded evidence of the golems existence, the original author and creator of the golem character was well known for his fictional stories and ideas.
also the story with the rebbe rashab does not mention the word golem in it.

What a pity!

They could have commemorate the Maharal in a much more Jewish and lastibg way, not as some weird magician.

dont forget how the Rebbe made sure that there was a stamp of the Rambam to spread his picture around the world and to get it printed in as many countries as possible
