The 1971 Christmas Issue included three stamps.

The 3 cent stamp featured 'The Holy Night (La Santa Notte)' by Carlo Maratta. At 47mm x 40mm, this was the largest Christmas stamp issued.

The 4 cent stamp features a stained glass window from St Luke's Anglican Church, Havelock North, Hawke's Bay. The church was consecrated in 1874 and escaped relatively unscathed in the 1931 earthquake.

The 10 cent stamp was designed by E Hunter and contains a graphic symbolising the three kings.
