Own the very first definitive stamps featuring King George VI- Just 21 available

Today you have the opportunity to own the VERY FIRST definitive stamps of King George VI.

The King George VI Commonwealth Stamp Collection features examples of the very first definitive stamps of George VI’s reign from more than 28 different territories - A  total of 96 stamps. The collection is now considered extremely scarce, and here’s why…

 A new era in stamps

The abdication of Edward VIII in 1936 and the unexpected accession of King George VI meant that the existing definitive stamps needed to be replaced, not only in Britain but throughout the British Empire.  The responsibility for the design and distribution of these overseas stamps went to the Crown Agents in London.

Through communication with the issuing countries, the stamps were designed in Great Britain, then approved by Buckingham Palace before being printed and then transported overseas.

Although King George VI acceded to the throne after the abdication of his brother in December 1936, the first definitive stamps bearing his portrait did not appear until 10th May 1937, just before the coronation.

Historic firsts

All 96 stamps are carefully presented for you on archive quality display pages housed in their own luxury Presentation Album, along with an accompanying Certificate of Authenticity and detailed Information Page.

Just 21 Available

However, considering the scarcity of these collections, I have only been able to source 21 and they are strictly available on a first-come first-served basis.

The only way to ensure you are one of the 21 collectors to own the collection, is to secure yours now.
