As early as 1841 when Hong Kong became a free trading port, a postal bureau was established locally to handle mail items for the British Army and postal matters for the public. In its early days, the Post Office (now also known as Hongkong Post) did not issue stamps but focused on postal service, and mail items were postmarked as a proof of postage payment. It was not until 1862 that Hong Kong had its first stamp issue.

It has been one and a half centuries since the release of our first set of stamps on 8 December 1862 when Hong Kong was under British rule. The stamps came in a set of seven and featured Queen Victoria in profile. To mark the 150th anniversary of stamp issuance in Hong Kong this year, Hongkong Post issues a set of six commemorative stamps and a stamp sheetlet adopting a "stamp-on-stamp" design, modelled on the first set of stamps issued in Hong Kong, with each featuring one of our first seven stamps alongside a writing instrument from an era in history or an electronic data carrier device widely used nowadays. The contrast between the past and the present highlights the progression of time and the unfading charm of stamps. 

$1.40: The two-cent stamp from our first stamp set appears on the left and is accompanied on the right by a quill, a writing instrument believed to be invented in the 6th century.

$1.80: The eight-cent stamp from our first stamp set appears on the right and is accompanied by a fountain pen, a popular writing instrument since the late 19th century.

$2.40: The 12-cent stamp from our first stamp set appears on the right and is accompanied by a ballpoint pen, a prevalent modern writing instrument invented in the 1930s.

$2.50: The 18-cent stamp from our first stamp set appears on the left and is accompanied by a typewriter, a regular item of office equipment between the late 19th and late 20th century.

$3: The 24-cent stamp from our first stamp set appears on the left and is accompanied by a keyboard, the indispensable input device for a computer system since the late 20th century.

$5: The 48-cent stamp from our first stamp set appears on the right and is accompanied by a QR Code, a popular electronic data device today. With a camera phone equipped with compatible applications, one can scan the QR Code on the stamp to gain instant access to the webpage of "The 150th Anniversary of Stamp Issuance in Hong Kong" and browse the stamp information.

$10: Stamp Sheetlet - Taking centre place of the stamp portion of the sheetlet is the highest denomination stamp from our first issue. Positioned next to a barcode, which is an item commonly used in the modern commercial world, this 96-cent stamp and the other six stamps of lower denominations on the right of the sheetlet form a complete set of our first stamps, making the sheetlet a truly precious souvenir.
