TRISTAN DA CUNHA

Tristan da Cunha is a volcanic archipelago remotely situated in the mid South Atlantic Ocean. Although settled by the British since 1817, the first postage stamps of Tristan da Cunha were issued some 135 years later in 1952. A set of 12 St. Helena stamps overprinted TRISTAN DA CUNHA was issued on 1 January 1952. Two years later a 14 value definitive series inscribed with the name of the Colony was issued. It follows the pictorial format adopted by most other territories and colonies and it depicts fish and sea life. Except for the 2d, the designs were utilised in 1961 for the new definitive series denominated in South African currency. In October 1961 a volcanic eruption forced the evacuation of the entire population. The resettlent of the Colony was celebrated with a set of 13 St. Helena stamps overprinted TRISTAN DA CUNHA / RESETTLEMENT / 1963. A definitive series of 14 stamps inscribed with the name of the Colony was issued in 1965; two additional denominations were issued in 1967. Except for two values, the series depicts ships; the series is further embellished by the Queen's portrait by Anthony Buckley.
