About 2019 Rock Legends Set of Mint Stamps

The Rock Legends stamp sheet delivers a tongue-in-cheek take on some of New Zealand’s quirkier rock formations, taking us on a tectonic tour of New Zealand’s head-shaped geological wonders. .

Take a head-banging tour of New Zealand’s bold boulders and radical rockfaces.

$1.30 Kaiaraara

This rock is also affectionately named after its resemblance to ‘The Iron Duke’, the Duke of Wellington.

$1.30 Lion Rock

Not just a head, but a whole lion. Arguably our greatest rock legend, this volcanic beast rests undisturbed on the black sand beach at Piha.

$1.30 Elephant Rock

Elephant Rock lost its glorious trunk a few years ago to the whims of Mother Nature. We commemorate this legend in 2019.

$1.30 Te Hoho Rock

Guarding the famous Cathedral Cove, this majestic character is a familiar face to anybody who has visited this scenic wonderland.

$1.30 Castlepoint Reef

Another rock portrait that stares out to sea. This legend tells of a giant wheke (octopus) that sought refuge here in a cave from the great Kupe.

$1.30 Motukiekie

This iconic sea-stack has become a must-see portrait at dusk. Not just a pretty face either, it’s also host to some of New Zealand’s rarest birdlife.

$1.30 Tunnel Beach

A colossal cliff face stares out to sea. Beyond the rugged beauty, this area is famous for the tunnel that was cut through to access the beach in 1870.

$1.30 Punakaiki

30 million years of pressure is starting to show on this face. These limestone ‘pancakes’ have created some interesting coastal characters.

$1.30 Anapai Bay

This handsome fella stands watch over golden beaches. He’s sometimes referred to as ‘photographer’s rock’ due to him being so naturally photogenic.
