This stamp was issued to commemorate the first dawn of the millennium from Pitt Island in the Chathams which is part of New Zealand's territory.

This was the first New Zealand stamp to be micro-printed and was issued in sheets of 50 and also a miniature sheet of 10 stamps. A printing error on the miniature sheets led to the New Zealand Millennium Logo being omitted from the first stamp in the third row. This stamp is listed as a variety.
