The Prince's Stamp Collection / Monaco's Stamp Issues

Prince Albert II of Monaco inherited the Grimaldi Stamp Collection from his father Prince Rainier III. The collection was originally started by Albert I.

Monaco is world-famous for its stamp issues, stamp exhibitions, and the Stamp and Coin Museum.

The "Office des Emissions de Timbres-Poste" (Stamp Issuing Office of Monaco) is part of the Monaco Government.

The "Musée des Timbres et des Monnaies" (Stamp and Coin Museum) is also part of the Monegasque Government and is at Fontvieille.

The annual philatelic Fair MonacoPhil is taking place in Monaco between December 4th and 6th.

Some of the rarest stamps in the world are on show; they come from the collections of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Albert II of Monaco.

For youngsters, there is a special game which will give them the chance to win some stamps to start (or complete) their own stamp collections.

The postal administrations of many countries are represented at MonacoPhil:

I got a used book a while back on the history of Monaco stamps and it is one of my prizes now. I used to do a little stamp collecting but alas, none from Monaco. Thanks for posting the video.

My father started to collect stamps, but really got into it when Rainier married Grace.
Their wedding gave a real boost to post-war philatelists!

Dad started me off on "Europa" stamps; in those days there were only six members of the European Economic Community, and the Monegasque ones were the most expensive ones, so I carried on collecting.

The collection now belongs to my son.

Dear Friends

Wish You all the Best.

Pls feel free to ask me any information about the STAMPS OF THE PRINCIPALTY OF MONACO.

Yes H. S. H. Prince RAINIER III of MONACO was a great stamp collector and lover. He was awarded by the SMITHSONIAN INSTITUDE for his collection...

Humbly have I the honour to design stamps for the Principalty of MONACO ...
Pls see on PHILATELY at my page Sylvia Cornet, 1957 - Designer, Conceptual Artist.

Grazie Mille

Sylvia

Dear friends

Yes : there is mail in the Principalty ; and very well done with excellence ; as all here around.
Kids are enchanted because at Xmas they also are allowed to send mail to father Santa Claus as there are big mail boxes near the sledge... And they get answered !

thanks for attention
Grazie mille

Sylvia

Looking ahead to Monaco's participation in the Shanghai World's Fair where the Monegasque Pavilion is 12 metres high and has a base area of two tousand square metres.

The theme of the Monaco exhibit is:
"Monaco, Past, Present, Future, challenges of the evolution of a City-State"

It will have a real racing circuit inside!

Here's a picture of their Pavilion:
Monaco promises thrilling trip through pavilion_InternationalÂ*Participation_Shanghai World Expo

A Block has been issued, size 114 x 95 millimetres.
