Every time New Zealand wins an Olympic medal a special sheet of six stamps will be printed featuring images of the medal winners, NZ Post says.

The medallist stamps are part of a series of collectable stamps and coins produced for Rio 2016 and they will be printed for gold, silver and bronze medallist.

"We'll be doing a bit of sprinting ourselves, and these limited edition stamps will be available to order through the New Zealand Post website shortly after the event," says Simon Allison, head of stamps and coins.

The stamps can be purchased at NZ Post shops and online.
