* ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'': In the events of ''Discworld/{{Making Money}}'', it is revealed that Lord Vetinari's signet ring is made of a special metal, possibly an alloy, that has the unique property of absorbing light and turning it into an intense heat. He stores it in a little wooden box when not stamping paperwork with it.

In Chinese law, and Japanese, one needs a stamp to 'sign' documents in one's name - 'signatures' as Europeans know them are an impossibility as written Chinese doesn't have an alphabet. Also called a 'chop', one's stamp must to be registered with the authorities before it is officially recognized. These stamps, referred to (by the Japanese) as ''hanko'', or ''inkan'', are used with red ink to mark a document.

Added DiffLines:

* For a while during the 18th century the Swedish monarchy had a personal stamp (created because it saved on time when there were too many things that legally required the king's signature). The use of it ended after the parliament confiscated it when the king refused to sign laws (it was an attempted ploy to claw back powers), declared that the previous acceptance of the stamping meant that constitutionally speaking the stamp could fill the legal role of the king, and used it to stamp laws themselves.

* Zeniba's golden seal in ''Anime/SpiritedAway'' turns out to be a major plot point, and in one DVD special the English staff talk about the addition of the word "golden" to keep the mostly young audience from mistaking it for the other type of seal that barks and dives underwater, viewers being morons and all that.

* In one episode of Anime/SeikimatsuOccultGakuin, Maya refuses to approve Fumiaki's proposal to allow Mikaze's shop to sell bread at the school. In fact, she throws her official seal at his head hard enough to leave a mark and enough ink for him to transfer to the paper.
