New Zealand's first circular postage stamp was issued on the 19th of October 1988. The one dollar stamp features a Kiwi in it's natural environment recess printed in green. The Maori motif around the border represents the flower of the Kowhai tree - which symbolises the continuous cycle of life.



The Round Kiwi stamp was issued in booklets of six stamps as illustrated above, and has subsequently been reissued many times in different colours and denominations.
