“This is a small company with a big asset: its brand is imbued with an unblemished reputation for expertise and honest dealing.”
The Times (London)
It’s a quiet confidence in our expertise, combined with our stringent adherence to quality that allows us to offer you a Lifetime Guarantee of Authenticity on all the stamps you purchase from us.
Stanley Gibbons - Quality, expertise & reassurance for you
Located in the heart of London at 399 Strand, Stanley Gibbons has been the home of stamp collecting since we started trading rare stamps in 1856. Stanley Gibbons is a globally recognised name and a brand synonymous with quality and expertise. We were awarded the Royal Warrant by King George V in 1914 – an honour that we still hold proudly today and we maintain by trading with the Royal household.
What that means for you is that you can rely on over 150 years’ experience and skill in appraising, buying, describing and selling stamps; in today’s uncertain times, trust and security may not be flashy, but they are fundamentally important to preserve your wealth.
In a market awash with small (and occasionally unscrupulous) stamp dealers but also rife with clever forgeries, it is vital to go to a name you can trust.
Look at the examples below; our experts know the difference between an investment grade stamp and ‘just another stamp’ or a worthless forgery.

Can you tell which is which?
As the market leader we are able to acquire the finest items on behalf of more than 150,000 clients around the world.
