Through the late 1960s and early 1970s there were a number of commemorative issues but during that time period the practice was to issue them as separate times. It was only later during the 1970s that these smaller issues began to get combined into one larger issue. Three of these smaller issues can been seen here where we have decided to feature them in this one post.
1970 Cardigan Bay.
This stamp was issued to commemorate the return to New Zealand of Cardigan Bay, the first standard bred light-harness horse in racing history to win $1,000,000 in stake money.
