On 6 March 2019, New Zealand Post issued a very interesting series of lighthouse stamps. The stamps feature views from the “eye of the lens” of each of six lighthouses. The stamps also include line drawings of the lighthouse from which the perspective view is taken. The Baring Head L/H stamp also shows the old and new Pencarrow lighthouses. The lighthouses shown are: Pouto, Manukau Heads, Baring Head, French Pass, Nugget Point and Puysegur Point. the Mini sheet has a sketch of Cape Egmont Lighthouse in the margin.
