The Philatelic Department of the Hutt River Postal Service is pleased to announce the issue of a special commemorative set of postage stamps to commemorate the:


40th Anniversary of the
Royal Hutt River Postal Service.
 15/11/1973 - 15/11/2013


The Royal Hutt River Postal Service commenced with the opening of the first Post Office in Nain and the issue of it’s first set of stamps “Wildflowers” on 15 November 1973. This was an early move by the then Hutt River Province in it’s development as a Sovereign State and led to the eventual findings in an Australian Court that “stamps issued by the HRP are indeed postage stamps that represent a  service and a place….”

Issued 15 November 2013 to commemorate 40 years of Royal Service,  the artwork from that first issue has been used in the central design of this set of stamps, with wording and values updated to meet today’s standards.
