When you’re into deltiology, or the study and collection of postcards, you’re not really far from philately, or the study and collection of stamps. I love stamps so much that I decided to start collecting Philippine stamps. The Philippine stamps I have are in Php1- Php30 denominations.


My precious University of the Philippines Centennial Commemorative stamp. (Special sheet with hot foil stamping.)

Designs include the Carillion Tower, the UP logo, the UP Centennial logo, and the UP Oblation. I just Love the metallic effect! I’m one proud UPian! Mabuhay ang Unibersidad ng Pilipinas! Still the number one, the premier state university 😉


The oldest Philippine stamp I have was issued in 2006. It’s one of my favorites. The stamp is rectangular in shape, 1×3 inches in size. It commemorates the Conquest of Mt. Everest by Filipinos. Also on the photo are two special stamps: Iglesia ni Cristo Executive Minister Erano Manalo (1925-2009) issued April 23, 2010; and a commemorative stamp of the Philippine Tuberculosis Society, Inc.’s 100 years of service. Both are 3×4 cms in size.

CY2010 Definitive stamps featuring the Philippine Marine Biodiversity in support of the conservation of marine biodiversity in the country and to showcase its beauty.

Denominations are Php1, Php2, Php 4, Php5, Php7, Php8, Php9, Php10, Php20 and Php26. Sad, I don’t have all the denominations.
