Stamps of Victoria

The site is dedicated entirely to the philately of the colony of Victoria, Australia, and is provided, free of charge, to assist collectors who specialize in this area.

The postage stamp issues of Victoria are numerous and complex. Victoria rejected the conventional wisdom accepted in most of the colonies of the British Empire to have postage stamps printed in England and shipped ready to use to the colony – instead, the colonists in Victoria decided to print their own stamps, using the manufacturing capabilities available to them at the time. This independence led to many variations in quality, plate production techniques, printing methods, paper supplies and other parameters that all contributed to the rich philatelic smorgasbord found in the stamps that emanated from the colony.
