Cancelled set of six gummed stamps

Individual stamps included in this set

$2.30 For the Fern - When New Zealand’s athletes hand-sewed the silver fern to their black singlets for the 1920 Antwerp Olympic Games, they began a 100-year tradition and unknowingly became the founding members of the New Zealand Team.  

$3.60 For the Team - The New Zealand Team grows to this day in number, strength and mana - encompassing all athletes who have worn the fern with pride at Olympic Games, Winter Olympic Games and Commonwealth Games.  

$4.30 For the Fans - Whether you’re watching on television or in the stands at the Games themselves, the atmosphere at the Olympic Games is unreal, the competition is incredible and to see our athletes give everything as they represent our country is extremely special.  

$4.90 For the Gold - For more than 100 years, our Olympic gold medallists have helped to shape our nation’s cultural identity and showcased our values and culture to the world. 

This stamp issue celebrates Aotearoa New Zealand’s Olympic athletes. Click here for more information.
