Royalpex 2017 was held in Hamilton in November 2017, attracting stamp collectors and dealers from around the country.
The Royalpex 2017 stamp show was held in Hamilton at the Distinction Hotel from 24-26 November 2017. The national stamp exhibition showed works and collections from around the country. Sometimes known as a ‘half national’ due to it having less classes available than a typical national exhibition, the show promised to be a quality display of sublime material. The event was run by the Royal Philatelic Society of New Zealand, proudly sponsored by New Zealand Post.
As an official sponsor, New Zealand Post had a central stand at the exhibition for those wishing to purchase stamps and coins, or arrange for the special daily cancellations to be applied to mail items.
Special Exhibition Collectables
In honour of Hamilton, New Zealand Post created two unique products featuring imagery of Hamilton in the background. The miniature sheet featured the idyllic Waikato river and three stamps from the popular Recovering Native Birds issue. The first day cover shows an aerial shot of the city as it stretches away in the distance.
