A true icon of international philatelics, the first postage stamp issued anywhere in the world was Great Britain's 1840 Penny Black. With a profile that extends well beyond the world of philatelics - beyond collecting even - the 1840 Penny Black is naturally the world's most famous stamp issue.

Signalling a revolution in communication, the Penny Black was introduced to thwart rampant postal fraud in Britain. A unique insight into mid-19th century history, and the cornerstone of every serious stamp collection, this iconic 177-year-old stamp features a portrait of the young Queen Victoria - crowned just three years before the Penny Black was issued.
