United Nations Stamps

United Nations stamps have been called “Messengers of Peace” for good reason – each stamp symbolizes our hopes and dreams fora better world.  Meaningful topics and handsome designs also make U.N. stamps highly collectible.  

The United Nations was formed in 1945 and franked official mail with U.S. postage.  Argentina proposed special U.N. stamps in 1949, and Secretary-General Trygbe Lie was asked to contact the U.S. to see if the proposal was feasible.  An agreement was reached that required U.N. stamps to be issued in U.S. denominations for use only at United Nations Headquarters in New York City.  The first U.N. stamp was issued on October 24, 1951, making them the only non-governmental organization in the world to have the privilege of issuing postage stamps.

The Geneva branch of the United Nations Postal Administration was opened at the Palais des Nations on October 4, 1969.  The Geneva headquarters issued stamps denominated in Swiss francs.  Ten years later, the Vienna headquarters began issuing U.N. stamps denominated in Austrian schillings.  Treaties between the agency and the three nations guarantee that the U.N. Post Office classes and postage correspond to those at any United States, Swiss, or Austrian post office.  Each country’s postal agency also receives revenue from the sale of U.N. stamps to offset the cost of processing the mail.
