Philatelic resources

This page provides the links to the philatelic postal administration pages and the dedicated new stamp issues web pages from where all this information can be gathered. There is no guarantee that these links are still active, but at least they were working at the time they were listed here. We will try to keep them updated also with your help. This tool is provided to the community in order for all of you to better participate to the high level of this site with your input. Thanks in advance.

Postal administrations

The following links include the places where the latest information about a country can be available. This list includes of course postal administrations, but also, if direct links to official philatelic sites are not available, access to shops and blogs providing some information about the most recent stamp issues. In several cases, the translation tools will be needed to retrieve detailed information.

  • Oman:
  • Ossetia (South):  see South Ossetia
  • Qatar:
  • Yemen:

Issuing programs

Dedicated pages where the philatelic programs for the current or following year are described is to be found in the next list. Only a few postal administrations update or publish on line these programs. The link points to the most recent page that was consulted. In the case this link was not updated, usually it is sufficient to rewrite the same address by just changing the year in the link.

On-line catalogues

There is an on-line access to some philatelic catalogues. The ones we have discovered in the past years, and that are quite complete, are listed below. This list is obviously to be updated (also for some older links) and of course, contains some dealer’s sites.

Blogs – Countries

Some collectors have started building blogs dedicated to information related to countries and in particular bringing to our attention the most recent information about new issues. The blogs that we have considered of interest for our specialty, i.e., the ones that bring detailed, accurate and up to date information about new joint stamp issues (among the overall information related to all stamps from this specific country) are reported in the following list. This list is of course not exhaustive.

  • Hong Kong:
  • Singapore:
  • USA:


Blogs – Topics

In the same way as for countries, other collectors have started building blogs dedicated to information related to specific topics and in particular bringing to our attention the most recent information about new stamp issues. The blogs that we have considered of interest for our specialty, i.e., the ones that bring detailed, accurate and up to date information about new joint stamp issues (among the overall information related to all stamps with this topic) are reported in the following list. This list is obviously not exhaustive.

  • King George V:
