Representing us in our national sport, the All Blacks are a point of pride for most New Zealanders. These special stamps were re-issued to reflect the changes to domestic postage rates that took effect 1 July 2014.
The All Blacks became World Champions in 2011 and have been named the IRB Team of the Year six times since 2005, so it’s no wonder that New Zealanders are fanatical about this sport and our national team.
The silver fern took pride of place on these official All Blacks stamps, which were released to reflect the changes to domestic postage rates (effective 1 July 2014).
The issue included a miniature sheet incorporating two x 80c stamps and two x $2.50 stamps, a miniature sheet first day cover and two sheets (one containing ten 80c stamps and one containing ten $2.50 stamps).
