SOUTH KOREA

South Korea commonly referred to as Korea, is a sovereign state in East Asia, constituting the southern part of the Korean Peninsula. Korea issued its first stamps on 18 November 1884 at the onset of its first modern postal service. Five denominations were printed - 5, 10, 25, 50, and 100 mon, but only the 5m and 10m values were issued for postal use. The post office was destroyed by a fire during the December 1884 uprising. As a result the 5m and 10m stamps in used condition or on cover are very rare. Korea issued its first commemorative stamp on 18 October 1902, to salute the 40th anniversary of the reign of Emperor Gojong. The last stamps of Imperial Korea consisted of a definitive series of 13 values issued in 1910, depicting a falcon symbol. In 1910, Japan assumed administrative control of the Korean Empire. This state of affairs continued until early 1945. The first stamps of South Korea were issued on 1 February 1946.
