With a distinguished heritage dating back to 1856, Stanley Gibbons is the world’s longest established rare stamp merchant. Their leading experts are at the heart of everything they do and travel globally in search of authentic, high-quality material often of extreme rarity and value. 

It is this adherence to quality that gained Stanley Gibbons its first Royal Warrant in 1914, courtesy of King George V. Its second Royal Warrant was received in 1956 at the decree of Queen Elizabeth II. It is this seal of approval that allows them to offer a lifetime guarantee on all rare items – to date, the only philatelist in the world to offer this assurance.

The company continues to serve pre-eminent collectors, philatelists and numismatists. Stanley Gibbons specialists advise the Royal Philatelic Collection, supplying stamps, publications and assistance whenever required.
