Monaco's Stamp & Coin Museum

The Museum of Stamps and Coins of Monaco establish in the end of 1995 and opened to the public in January 1996.

The Museum, of contemporary design, houses rare stamps depicting the Principality’s postal history, as well as all the documents, which have been used in the stamp-printing process from the first Charles III stamp in 1885 to the present day. For more details: https://www.visitmonaco.com

 

Since 1995 the museum has appeared several times on stamps of Monaco, all of which of course appear in our lists as stamps on stamps:

#1953

Scott: #1953, Issued: 8.5.1995

 

Scott: #2022a, Issued: 14.10.1996

 

#2111A

Scott: #2111, Issued: 18.1.1999

 

#2255

Scott: #2255, Issued: 31.5.2002

monaco      ss  10.15.21

Scott: #3070, Issued: 15.10.2021

 

 

As you can see in the picture, the left side of the entrance to the museum is engraved with several stamps of Monaco. We managed to identify most of the stamps (see below), with the main identification done, of course, by Lou Guadagno, with a some help from Michael Merritt.

To this day we have not been able to identify the right stamp in the first row - this is a task that now rests on all of us...

Shame on Australia!

The Australia Post celebrated the 90th Anniversary of the opening of the Sydney Harbour Bridge with a limited edition SoS imperf sheet folder with an issue of only 120 pieces!  Other non-SoS items are included. See below.

 

With a cost of AU$49.95, it sold out immediately and one dealer with 113 of them (why should he have been allowed to buy so many?) is asking for AU$175.00 each! For a U.S. buyer, if you have to have one and if he will sell to the U.S., that's only about $120.00 with the current exchange of the tanking AU$. If you are feeling lucky, you can contact Australia Post and enter a lottery to win the one available for the original price!

No post should do such a thing to the collectors of their stamps

Stamps on stamps

The topic of stamps on stamps is one of the most diverse of all topicals. Ever since Sir Rowland Hill first advocated the use of prepaid pieces of paper to be adhered to letters to expedite their delivery, the postage stamp has fascinated people. It should come as no surprise, then, that the postage stamp is being used as a stamp motif, and that topical collecting of stamps on stamps is popular. The topic of stamps on stamps is an interesting one in that it covers many different areas and avenues while still being true to the stamp topic.

If you find the topic of Stamps On Stamps (SOS) appealing, we urge that you seriously consider joining us so as to associate yourself with collectors world-wide who are engaged in building collections of premium stamps through the medium of this topic and type of thematic collecting. You would be most welcome as a member of our unit.

The Stamps on Stamps Collectors Club is a non-profit philatelic organization. Membership is open to anyone interested in stamps on stamps, stamp anniversaries, and related topics. No member or officer of the group is paid for work done for the organization beyond reimbursement of expenses incurred on behalf of the unit.

Our official bulletin is SOS SIGNAL, which is issued three times per year and contains new issue information, articles of interest, and news about our topic. Our official bulletin is the forum for SOS matters. To obtain a sample copy of SOS SIGNAL, please send your name and address and $3.00 to the Secretary/Treasurer:
