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.

White rhinoscerous - special 50 cent Venda stamp


The white rhinoceros is Africa's second-largest land mammal after the elephant. A full-grown bull can attain a shoulder height of over two metres with a mass of some 2,300 kg. The animal is grey or dark grey in colour and has two horns on the snout, the front horn being the longer of the two. Its broad muzzle has a squared upper lip, adapted for grazing. A single calf is born after a gestation period of about 16 months. The calf usually ambles ahead of its mother, unlike the black rhinoceros calf which travels alongside or behind the mother.
