New Zealand 2015
All Blacks





2015 is the year in which the All Blacks will attempt to reclaim the title of Rugby World Cup champions. To recognise this significant moment in New Zealand’s sporting history, we’ve worked with New Zealand Rugby and its partner, adidas, to bring you a special stamp and coin that epitomises the very essence of being part of the All Blacks - the jersey.

Worn with pride for generations, the jersey has been some variation of a black uniform with a silver fern since 1893, and in 1905 the team became habitually referred to as the ‘All Blacks’. Although the jersey has changed many times over the years to keep up with the intense pace of our national game, the mana of the jersey continues to this day.

Own a piece of All Blacks history

This exciting, innovative stamp contains real fabric supplied by adidas from the All Blacks 2015 Home Replica Jersey. The fabric has been printed on with precision to include the All Blacks logo, the adidas logo and the AIG logo, and then die-cut to replicate the real jersey worn on the field. The jersey is applied to gummed stamp paper, with the complete design replicating a framed jersey.

This premium $15 stamp comes sealed in a collectable folder that features imagery of this iconic rugby team - from the ‘Originals’ of 1905 to the modern-day team. Inside you can read more about the legacy of the All Blacks jersey and the history surrounding the boys in black.
