In 1997 a series of stamps was issued to mark New Zealand’s discovery by individual explorers from Kupe and Māui to Captain James Cook. Honouring Jean François de Surville, this stamp features the anchor of his ship St Jean Baptiste, and the pā site at Tokerau where his ship anchored. The French explorer Dumont d’Urville was also recognised in the series.
