United Nations stamps are issued simultaneously at UN offices in New York, Geneva and Vienna. Each issue carries a related design theme, with different denominations for each office. They are valid for postage when used on mail from the UN offices in New York, Geneva and Vienna.

The idea of the United Nations issuing its own stamps was first proposed by Argentina in 1947. An agreement with the United States postal authorities was reached in 1951 and it stipulated that the stamps be denominated in United States currency, and used only at UN Headquarters.

The first United Nations stamps were issued in U.S. dollar denominations on United Nations Day, 24 October, in 1951.  http://www.un.org/Depts/UNPA/about.htm
