My collection of stamps - Monaco

The postal services in Monaco have said to exist as early as early 18th century. For a brief period, Monaco used stamps of Sardinia from 1851 to 1860. Thereafter French stamps with Monaco or Monte-Carlo overprints were used.

The first indigenous stamps of Monaco were finally issued on Huly 1, 1885 with head of Prince Charles III of Monaco. Prince Rainier III, who himself was an avid stamps and coins collector, showed keen interest in the philatelic services of his country in 1949 as he believed that the stamps were the best ambassador of a country.

Monaco joined the Universal Postal Union in 1955 and Post Europ in 1993.

Seen above is the page from my stamps collection of stamps from Monaco.
