The 2001 Ross Dependency stamps, issued on the 7th November 2001, featured penguins found in the Ross Dependency area. On the same day New Zealand also issued a set of six stamps, also featuring penguins, 2001 Penguins. but this time penguins from around New Zealand. There have been occasions when these two sets have been confused but it must be remembered that they are independent of one another, released by two different postal administrations.
But it also must be acknowledged that these two stamp issues are also linked, through their designer, their printer and their subject of penguins.
The six value Ross Dependency Penguin issue.
