6 February 2015 marks the 175th anniversary of the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi, and to commemorate this momentous occasion in New Zealand history, New Zealand Post is issuing a special commemorative stamp.
New Zealand Post has been working on products for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 that will bowl people for six - a sheet of cricket ball-shaped stamps and New Zealand's first ever curved legal tender commemorative coin.
In 2015 Chinese New Year will begin on 19 February, and one of New Zealand’s most iconic animals takes the spotlight – the sheep. To commemorate a new year in the Chinese lunar calendar, New Zealand Post will release its annual ‘lunar’ stamp issue celebrating the Year of the Sheep.
Actor Evangeline Lilly says she is delighted to be featured on an official New Zealand Post stamp and coin to help celebrate the upcoming release of the epic fantasy adventure The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, a production of New Line Cinema and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures (MGM).
