Charles and Diana 1981 royal wedding stamps

The past couple of weeks I had received in the mail 2 albums with the Charles and Diana 1981 royal wedding stamps. And I was wondering if anyone else has these 2 albums or just the stamps in general or am I the only one who has these?

No, I don't, ash6988. Hi! I do remember the year of Charles and Diana's wedding though, and the souvenirs and memorabilia of all kinds. Stamps commemorating the event were produced all over the Commonwealth, from Britain to the Bahamas, the Sceychelles to Ghana, in their hundreds.
This page shows just a few of them.

Charles and Diana 1981 Royal wedding stwmps

Curryong, yeah, I've seen those on eBay too. I came across those when I was doing different searches on the stamps. Ever since I've got them I've now been wondering how much they are actually worth or if there is even a price value on them at all?

Well, what I would do is (a) if there is a philately club operating in your nearest town or city phone them up and ask their advice. Or, if you don't fancy that, (b) find a big city store that buys and sells stamps, coins etc and ask what these stamps are worth, if anything. A phone call is your best bet first, before taking the stamps anywhere. Anyway, they're a nice souvenir of a Royal occasion so you haven't really lost out. Good luck!

I don't know, and short of contacting a philately society or club near your home, or a shop selling such memorabilia, you're probably not going to find out.

Some of these stamps being offered on e-bay may give a bit of an idea.

Curryong, from the looks of it it's not that much. And it's an Australian eBay site. It will probably be the same prices even on the American eBay site. And I just don't have the stamps from Australia. I have them from other places too such as the Bahamas, the British Virgin Islands just to name a to name a couple. So I'm probably thinking ether way it's not going to be that much.

No, they're probably not worth much. They are just great souvenirs of Prince Charles and Lady Diana and a particular time in the 1980's.

Curryong, Yeah they are a really great souvenirs. When I received them I was super excited. And then when I actually sat down and a chance to go through the two binders of stamps I was so thrilled with how amazing they are. I'm so glad that I have these. And they made a great addition to the other pieces that I have In my royal collection.
