All Venda in stamps

The Republic of Venda was created by the South African government as an independent homeland for the Venda people. It existed from 1979 to 1995.

When South Africa moved to a democratic form of government, Venda was incorporated into the new South Africa and ceased to exist as a separate entity.
Venda stamps, which were issued regularly over the 15 years of the republic's existence, are increasingly hard to obtain. They are well designed, valuable in themselves, and are also prized as collectors' items. An additional benefit is that detailed information on the subjects that are pictured in the stamps are provided in fact sheets that accompany the original first-day covers.
A few of the many stamps that were issued are available for purchase here. A mint unused stamp set or individual set as well as information on the item featured on the stamp will be included with your stamp order.

We are regularly adding more stamps—so keep checking.
