When more I look at the tower, more I believe that it is Bell Rock, though the lighthouse is not in the route Port Chalmers (NZ) - London.   But the evidence is not enough,  so for the moment,  I will put this under the label Unidentified.
 
The anual PDF file from the year 2012 was modified with this issue.  The new version is available to Download clicking at the right bar. 
 
 
Thanks Jaap for the alert, and congrats for the discovery.

General Info: Sticker


This item is not philatelic (although involves an album and gummed paper).
 
As you know (or maybe not), the "Copa America" of football begins in two days in Chile.
The official album of stickers for this event (published by Panini http://www.paninigroup.com/) have in the position number 8, the image up here.  An aerial view of the beach in La Serena, and of course the Faro Monumental in the center of the sticker.
 
I was waiting a stamp issue from Chile for this event with the posibility that this lighthouse appears in one of them. But no.  The 2 stamps released do not depicts the cities that host the cup.
So, this will be the ítem with lighthouses that I will get from this event, thanks to my nephew, Guillermo.
