New Zealand & Australia 2015 Joint Issue
ANZAC 2015







:: NEW ZEALAND
 :: THEME: ANZAC 2015
  :: DENOMINATIONS: 80c, $2.00
   :: ISSUE DATE: 7 April 2015 
    :: DESIGN: Australia Post Design Studio





This special connection between New Zealand and Australia is reflected in the design of the stamps and coins of this commemorative issue. The 80c stamp features the iconic Australian golden wattle and incorporates hues that represent Australia’s sunburnt earth and blue skies, while the $2.00 stamp features New Zealand’s silver fern and integrates the lush greens and blues of New Zealand’s fertile landscape. Across both stamps and coins stand two soldier silhouettes from an Anzac memorial service - a catafalque sentry and a bugler sounding the Last Post. A background image of Anzac Cove, Gallipoli extends over both stamps and coins, creating a design reflecting the unity of our Anzac alliance.
