The very first Ugandan stamps were issued in 1890 by missionaries and are known as "Uganda Cowries." They are rare and valuable. Uganda's first stamps as a British Protectorate arrived from London in 1898 and say "Uganda Protectorate." From 1903-1922, the stamps say "East Africa and Uganda." From 1935-1976, the stamps say "Kenya, Uganda, and Tanganyika/Tanzania." Uganda established its own postal system in 1962 when it gained independence from Britain. Beginning in 1977, all stamps say "Uganda."
