Stamps and coins collide for the Queen

Gillick, 1953

Gillick, 1956

Machin, 1967

Since Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth ll's Coronation 60 years ago, her portrait has appeared on the obverse side of our coins - reflecting the importance of her role as the Queen of New Zealand . To celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Queen's Coronatio n, we are issuin g a unique stam p and coin issue. Both the stam ps and coin will feature th e six main depictio ns of the Queen on New Zealand coins and they are sure to be a special reminder of the Queen's reign.

Portraits steeped in history When a monarch rules for a long time, the depiction of their ima ge on coins becomes a marker of history. Elements such as hair styles , skin , clo thing and royal headgear [laurel wrea th, diadem or crownl change throughout the years to give a spectrum of Her Majesty during her 60-year reign.

The Queen through the years Since the Queen's Coronation in 1953 six main portraits have appeared on New Zealand' s legal tender coins .. five on circ ulating currency and one on a comme morative coin, In 1953 New Zealand, along wi th Br itain and other countries, issued the youthf ul portrait of the Queen designed by Mrs Mary Gillic k, It depicted the young Queen's bust down to her shoul ders and outl ined the Queen's righ t arm in a delicate dr ess, It was widely consi dered that the engraving of Mary Gillick's 1953 design did not show the detail well on the coin. Therefor e it was re-engraved and a new die was introduced on coins in New Zealand in 1956. The relief was lowere d and the most prom inent change was to show the detail of the Queen's dress more clearly as it was barely visible on the original 1953 engravin g. The third effigy of the Queen to be used on a New Zealand coin was created by Arnold Machin and was in use from www.nzpost.co.nz!stamps

Ber ry, 1979

Maklouf,1986

Rank ¡Broadley, 1999

1967 until 1985. The laurel wr eath fr om the Gillick design was r eplaced with a light open-w ork diadem wit h a motif of lily !calle d th e Girls of Great Br itain and Ir eland diadem!. This diadem was received by the Queen as a wedding gift fr om her gr andm other, Queen Mary, in 1947. The portrait was actually re-engraved in 1984 and 1985 to show more detail, but the changes were not signi ficant. New Zealand had its own unique Queen's effigy from 1979 to 1982. The design was crea ted by Reginald George James Berry and was used on New Zealand commemora tive large dollar coins . When considering the possibility of a new effigy, Berry wrote, "It will be a hard job to get it accepted I think... but it is worth a try, Always a trie r, tha t's me..''. Berry completed more than 1,000 stam p and coin designs in his lifetime. By 1986 the Br iti sh Royal Mint was considering a new portra it and a design by Raphael Maklouf was selected . The portra it diff ered from the Machin design in that it showed the Queen with out r obes surroun ding the neckline. The Queen's jewe llery includes tear -shaped earrings made for Queen Victor ia in 1858, which were worn by Queen Elizabeth II duri ng her Corona tion. The portr ait of the Queen that we see on our coins today was designed by Ian Rank -Broadley, and has been in use since 1999. The depiction of the Queen is very realistic, with the softly outlined wrin kl es re flec ting the Queen's age. More than 12 years have passed since this mos t recent design, so perh aps we can expect a new effigy in the not too distant fut ur e? In the meantime, you can expect to see these six portraits portra yed in a unique wayan a stamp and coin issue comi ng very soon!

Wellington goes Hobbit-mad When our The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey stamp and coin issues were released in November 2012, they sparked a wave of excitement in New Zealand and around the world. We thought we'd share some of the action with you in case you missed out! One Hobbit and 13 Dwarves light up New Zealand Post House On 29 October last year the lights were switched on behind huge silhouettes of 13 Dwarves Inamely Thorin Oakenshield, Balin . Dwalin, Bifur, Bofur, Bombur, Nori, Gloin, Ori, Oin, Kili, Dori and Filii - plus a distinctly largerthan -life Hobbit IBilbo Bagginsl. who took up residence on the side of New Zealand Post House. This distinctive Wellington building also featured a giant banner of Bilbo Baggins on our 70c stamp - attracting attention far and wide . The installation looked amazing lit up in Wellington's night sky, and even made an appearance on One News! Speaking of the installation, Simon Allison, New Zealand Post's spokesman on stamps and coins, said, 'We wanted to celebrate these momentous movies in a very public way, which reflected the enormous positive impact that comes from having films like these produced in New

4

Zealand's capital .. You can't get much more public than having a procession of six-metre -tall Dwarves and a Hobbit looming over Wellington's harbour", Installing them was no small task, given that New Zealand Post House stands on what's widely regarded as the windiest corner in Wellington. 'We worked closely with Weta Workshop on this installation, which has been designed to withstan d winds of up to 140 kilometres per hour 186 miles per hour]. " Simon Allison said." The only sacrifice we had to make was not including an image of Gandalf - who, to keep things to scale, would have been over 12 metres (40 feet) tall. Gandalf may have been able to defeat the Balrog in the Mines of Moria, but sadly the Wellington winds just proved too much for him on this occasion," Weta Workshop's creator Sir Richard Taylor was closely involved and he and his family performed the important task of switching on the lights for the first time - to much applause. www.nzpost.co.nzlstamps


The impressive lighting was designed and installed by MJF Lighting - Well ington's leading supplier of theat re and event light ing, The project was managed by The Building Intelligence Group - one of New Zealand's largest independent project management com panies,

Markets and red carpets... In the five days leading up to the premiere of The Hobbit: An Unexpe cted Journey a 'Hobbit' -themed ma rke t took over Well ington 's Waitangi Park , New Zealand Post's 'Hobbit' stand sell ing stamps and coins proved extremely popular with the thousan ds of tourists and locals in town for the big event. The excitement continued into premie re day on Courtenay Place, where New Zealand Post had booths alon g the red car pet selling the popular 'Hobbit' collecta bles , Dressed as posties, sta ff fr om New Zealand Post in Well ingt on even walke d down the red carpet, handing out 'Hobbit' flags to the many enthusiastic fans, Countless fl ags featuring our stamps li ned the stree ts, and PostShops and REAL Aotear oa stores also got int o the spiri t wi th 'Hobbit'-themed win dows,

Update on international standing orders In the October 2012 issue of Focus we incl uded a survey for international customers who receive their produ cts by standing order. This was part of a review of our standing order process to ensure that collec tables ar e suppli ed to you in the mos t appropri ate way. The vast major ity of respondents stated that they were happy to continue to receive their standing orders as products are issued. There was some inter est in consoli dating orders and sending them out less fr equently, but only if this was cost- effective. As countries charge varying amounts of tax on inwards goods we cannot guarantee that this would be a cheaper optio n lit could be more expensive in some cases]. Therefore at the moment we are not proposing any changes to the way we treat overseas standing orde rs . Thank you to everyone who took the time to respond to the survey. Your feedback is always appr eciated and we will continue to review these processes going forward .

New Zealander signs the Roll of Distinguished Philatelists Last October Dr Robin Gwynn of Napier had the great honour of signing the Roll of Distinguished Philatelists. The Roll of Disti nguishe d Philatelists was establis hed at the 1921 Philatelic Congress with the approval of His Majesty King George V, who was also its first signatory. An invitation to sign the roll is regard ed as the world 's preeminent philatelic honour. New signatorie s are invited to sign the roll each year at a special ceremony. There is now a total of 360 signatories from 38 countries . The 2012 signing ceremony took place at St John' s Kirk , one of the oldest buildings in Perth , Scotla nd, on 21 Oc tober. Among st the four philatelists who were invited to sign the roll was Dr Robin Gwynn.

Above (from left l: The Provost of Kirk, Dr Robin Gwynn and Francis Kiddi e RDP,

Robin has a form idabl e knowledge of the stam ps and postal history of his own country, and has undertaken extensive organisational and promotional work. He received New Zealand's highest philatelic award, the Medal of Philatelic Excellence , in 2008. Robin is a mem ber of the Intern ational Association of Experts in Philately and is an accr edited Federation Internationale de Philatelie Judge in Literature, Postal History and Tradit ional Disciplines. He is also an Overseas Representative for the Royal Philatelic Society, London. Speaking of signing the roll, Robin stated, "It was a wonderful if somewhat unnerving experience , and also a hum bling one given the calibre of previous signers of the roll. I was the ninth New Zealander to be invited to sign: given the size of our population, that's a remarkable achievement - we have a tradition of punching above our weight in world philately" ,

REAL heritage from Sandy Rodgers When Sandy Rodgers of Wellington realised how little she knew of not only her own personal heritage, but also New Zealand 's heritage, she made it her goal to study, research, read, question and create as much information as possible . The result was a collection of artwork s that fuses her extensive researc h with her incr edibl e artis tic talent. This particular collec tion is inspired by variou s tran sportation methods used throughout Aotear oa's history . Sandy's art work is intricately detailed , with her pages and snippets of research form ing the background of each piece. She uses watercolour and ink to create the nostalgic imagery on top - resulting in work s of art that are rich with textur e and that tell a story about days gone by.

informa tion in a way through which people with interests in either will be able to learn about something new. Art is a medium that has been documenting history since the beginning of time , even before the writt en word, and like literature it hasn't always been totally accurate however , Sandy believes that the effect is the same. It is a means to an end, and she feels that it is necessary to commu nicate her thoughts in a way that satisfies her need to create some thing beautiful. interes ting and informative.

I foun d a sma ll blu e butt erfly on th e island nation of Niue in the south -wes tern Pacific Ocean : Niu e Blue Na caduba niuee nsis . This was extre mely sur prisi ng as the Pacific isla nds have, generally speaking, been th or oughly resea rc hed by numerous scientists and expeditions over many decades. As suc h it is wid ely accept ed that the chances of fin din g any new butt erfly species among st any of the Pacific isl ands is now very re mo te indeed. It is an endemic species found only on Niue, a si ngle isl and nation . The nearest island is hu ndreds of ki lo me tres away, so it is very isolated.

Rob Lachlan collec ting butt erflies.

What about you; how do you feel about it all? Nat urall y I was very sur prise d but al so quietly thrille d to come acr oss suc h an unexpected find on a small, very r em ote isl and wi th very few but ter fly species reco rded ther e so far .

How did you find this rare species?

What's your approach to collecting? How is it done?

On a two -week trip to Niue in Decem ber 2009 I caugh t a single male , small, blue butterfly from a fl ower ing tree and was not quite sure w hat it was . On return ing to Australia I discovered it was an undesc ri bed species. I learnt, after reading a variety of publishe d scientific papers on the Pacific, that a very si milar single femal e butterfly had been collected 30 years earlier. Two specimens in 30 years sugges ts that the species is possibly very rare .

I've been collecti ng for many years on numerous Pacif ic isl ands, hoping to fin d new species but always realising the chances are very low . The material is collected using lar ge butt er fly nets. Several hours are spent each day just wanderin g arou nd forest trai ls and along roa dsi des with fl ower ing plants.

And what's been the response so far?

I have discover ed ma ny new species of butterfly and hawk moth over the years and pub lished nu merous scientific paper s. I was electe d a Fellow of the Royal Entomological Society of London in 1984 and, mo re im por tantly to me , have been a Resear ch Associat e of the Australian Museum 's Entom ology Departm ent si nce th e 1980s.

The res ponse to its discovery has been one of considera ble sur prise , wi th everyone wondering how it coul d have been mi ssed. John Tennent, an expert ento molo gist on Pacific isl and butterfi es from the Natural History Museum, London , expresse d th e same feel ings .

What's next on your collecting agenda?

Because there is only a handfu l of plant and animal species that are uni que to Niue, th is butt erfly has particular im portance for the people of th e island .

The Niu e Blu e Butterfly stam p iss ue is avai la ble from 10April 20 13.
