SEYCHELLES

Between 1860 and 1890, stamps of Mauritius were used on mail originating from the Seychelles. The first stamps of the Seychelles depicted Queen Victoria and were issued on 5 April 1890, when the islands were still a dependency of Mauritius. Additional definitive stamps were issued during the 1890s, and some of them were surcharged locally due to shortage of certain heavily used denominations. On 26 May 1903, new definitive stamps depicting Edward VII were issued. The first stamps with a design featuring elements of local relevance were the definitive stamps issued in 1938 for King George VI. The stamps invariably featured the portrait of the monarch in an oval frame; the pictorial elements of local significance were; a coco-de-mer palm; a giant tortoise; and a fishing pirogue.
