    Australia’s first stamps offer a breathtaking glimpse into our colonial past. Discover the scarce 1850 Sydney View Stamp Trio – available now in rarely-seen ‘four-margin’ quality.

    The 1d Red, 2d Blue and 3d Green Sydney View stamps were issued in 1850, just a few decades after settlement. Most British colonial stamps of this era depicted Queen Victoria, the monarch of the time. But these stamps were an unusual departure from the norm, making them the first pictorial stamps issued in the world!

    The world’s first pictorial stamps!

    Rather than featuring a portrait of the queen, these stamps were inspired by the Great Seal of NSW. This design had been granted by King George III in 1791, and was used to create wax seals for important documents like convict pardons. In the design, several unchained convicts are greeted by Industry, personified as a man. This highly symbolic scene hinted at the idea that wrongdoers could be redeemed by the penal system.

    These historic postage stamps are scarce in any condition, and rarely seen in superior ‘four-margin’ quality!  Don't miss your chance to own the 1850 Sydney View stamps in incredible four-margin Fine Used condition – and SAVE $335! Click ‘add to cart’ now.
