Major errors in the placement of the vertical perforations are known in all stamp values in this issue. This results in New Zealand and the stamp value being found at the bottom rather than the top of each stamp, except in the bottom row where both are completely missing.

The Olympic logo, "Sydney 2000" and the New Zealand Post fern motif were deliberately omitted from the bottom of the $1.50 and $1.80 stamps. Netball, although recognised by the IOC, is not contested at Olympic games. Bowling was demonstrated at the 1988 Olympic games but has never been included on the official Olympic program.
