The first issue of Barbados stamps was received in february 1852 to coincide with the opening of the Inland Postal Office. They featured Britannia stting on sugar bags - sugar represented the most valuable produce in the Empire. She was also featured on the stamps of Trinidad and Mauritius.

The early stamps bore no values and were distinguished solely by their colours. The first stamps printed with values were issued in 1858; however, it was not until 1874 that values were printed on lower denominations. For thirty years, Britannia was featured on all issues of the Barbados stamps, the only distinction between the first stamp and later issues is that the values were printed at the bottom and "Barbados" was at the top. The first stamps in dollars and cents were issued in 1950.

Unlike other British West Indian islands Barbados never used British stamps for domestic use (http://bps.gov.bb).
