Between 26 June and 4 July 2004, the Le Salon du Timbre exhibition was held in Paris, France.
New Zealand Post commemorated this international philatelic event with a miniature sheet that included two stamps from the 100 years of New Zealand Rugby collection and one stamp from our Rugby Sevens collection. The exhibition miniature sheet image showed the All Blacks playing France at the Stade de France on the 16th November 2000. You could also order a special souvenir cover that featured the Eiffel Tower.
