Postage stamps in St. Lucia were first issued in 1860; these featured, as did virtually all British colonial stamps of the era, Queen Victoria‘s portrait. For many years, the stamps of St. Lucia featured mostly royal subjects, then later various animals and plants and other St. Lucia-related things as well.
Virtually all stamps of St. Lucia, for the first 100+ years of its stamp history, used the abbreviated ST. LUCIA as their inscriptions. A 1960 stamp is a rare exception, and in the late 1970s, the fuller SAINT LUCIA began appearing far more often. In 1979, St. Lucia gained independence from Britain; it is now a sovereign country with its own stamps.
Collectors of St. Lucia stamps may choose from maximum cards issued especially for the island, as well as various complete sets, air post items, covers (including first day covers), minisheets and blocks, overprints, postage due items, souvenir sheets, et cetera. There are even a few war tax stamps from World War I sometimes seen for sale. Browse the current listings to see what’s available now.
