Buying and Selling Newfoundland Mint and Used Postage
Updated April 16, 2018
Newfoundland and Labrador
is a Canadian province
located on the east coast of North America. It consists of Labrador,
which is situated on the mainland of the continent and the island of
Newfoundland. Newfoundland became a British colony in 1583 when it was
annexed by Sir Humphrey Gilbert. It achieved self-governing status as a
Dominion in 1907.
In 1927, the British government ruled on a dispute between Quebec and
Newfoundland, deciding Labrador would be considered part of the
Dominion of Newfoundland. In 1933, because of high debt from World War
I and the construction of a railway across the island, the Newfoundland
legislature voted itself out of existence. A commission of seven
members appointed by the British government ran the colony with no
elected representation for 15 years. On April 1, 1949, Newfoundland
joined Canada following two referenda on the colony's future.
part of its time as a colony and Dominion, between January 1, 1857 and
June 24, 1947, about 300 stamps were issued by the Newfoundland Post
The stamps are widely acclaimed for the design and their presentation
of the country's history and geography. Although there are some
rarities, the majority of these issues are modestly priced and a fairly
complete collection is possible for most
collectors. Read more about its history here.
