Royal Baby commemorative coin – New Zealand Post

New Zealand Post, the state owned post shop of New Zealand, has recently released its range of commemorative stamps for the birth of the Royal Baby, His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge.

Due to New Zealand being a supportive and proud Commonwealth realm the post shop, which has created a number of ranges dedicated to the Royal Family over the years including a great set of ranges for the Royal Wedding of His Royal Highness Prince William to Catherine Middleton and Her Majesty The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and Coronation Anniversary, has released a set of stamps showing The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge leaving the Lindo Wing of St Mary’s Hospital in London with their newborn son Prince George on the 23rd of July, a day after the prince’s birth.

Members of the public wishing to buy the stamps in question are able to select out of a number of different options ranging from a single stamp to a beautiful presentation pack which includes stamps and an information pack all presented in a fold out card. The information in question is written by Dr Sean Palmer who is the current chair of Monarchy New Zealand a non-profit, non-government organisation dedicated to promoting the monarchy of New Zealand and it’s continued involvement in the unique country’s governance.

New Zealand post also released a commemorative one dollar proof coin made of 0.999 silver which features a ‘princely coronet’ in gold on one side. New Zealand Post describes the coin as such:
