Mahatma Gandhi 150 years: Stamps from Around the World

Collecting stamps of Mahatma Gandhi is probably one of the more popular themes in philately. Countries around the world have been issuing stamps on Mahatma Gandhi. The year 2019 marks Mahatma Gandhi’s 150th birth anniversary, and thus an occasion to commemorate this great man across the world. Countries around the world are issuing stamps to commemorate his birth anniversary. I am starting to collate a list of countries and the stamps and philately items they are issuing on 150th year of Mahatma Gandhi. Here are the countries and stamps I have found so far. I will try to update this list whenever possible. Do drop a comment in case you know of countries that have issued stamps on the occasion and are missing from the list.

  1. Please add Korea
    Special shape stamp without perforation and on silk

    1. Thanks. I checked the Korea stamp. It was issued in 2018 to commemorate 100 years of Khadi so it wouldn’t fit this theme of 150 years of Mahatma Gandhi.

      1. I have completed world stamps of Gandhiji
        1947 to 2018

        1. That’s an amazing collection Paresh ji.

  2. Add Monaco. And understand that Qatar not issued stamps but issued only My Stamp!

    1. Monaco is already there in the list. You are right about Qatar. These are definitives with Gandhi 150 years marks on the selvage, a special sheetlet to mark the occasion.

  3. United Nations has issued now new Gandhi stamps. Some nations are yet to issue the same. eg.Canada, Australia,China, Japan, Pakistan, Nepal, Malaysia etc. Try to send an excellent reminder to the concerned rulers of those countries to follow the other nations in this matter.
