The Capital Stamp Show 2015 New Zealand
The Wellington Philatelic Society hosted this year’s annual stamp show at the TSB Bank Arena, Wellington celebrating 150 years since Parliament moved from Auckland to Wellington.
Various teams from other countries exhibited their stamp collections. This gave attendees a unique opportunity to see stamp collections that wouldn’t normally be displayed in New Zealand.
Also at the show were stamp dealers and exclusive stamp products, all in New Zealand’s beautiful capital city, Wellington.
The 14th New Zealand National Philatelic Literature Exhibition was also held in conjunction with The Capital Stamp Show 2015.
Wellington, though occasionally a bit windy and surrounded by hills, is a bustling city with a vibrant range of shops, restaurants, cafes and other attractions.
