Cyprus Mint Stamps - Cyprus Newest Stamps


A former British colony, Cyprus became independent in 1960 following years of resistance to British rule. Tensions between the Greek Cypriot majority and Turkish Cypriot minority came to a head in December 1963, when violence broke out. In 1974, A Greek Government-sponsored attempt to seize control of Cyprus was met by military intervention from Turkey, which soon controlled more than a third of the island. In 1973, the Turkish-held area declared itself the “Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus” (“TRNC”), it is recognized by only Turkey.
Early Cyprus stamps are overprinted on Queen Victoria stamp issues from Great Britain. These are quite popular with stamp collectors. In 1928 there was a philatelic breakthrough of sorts with the issuance of a ten value Cyprus stamp set to commemorate 50 years as a British Colony. This was a multicolored, engraved KGV stamp set that was very popular with collectors and still is today. Listed by Scott as # 114-23 Cyprus stamp, Cyprus stamps, Herrick Stamp Cypriot stamps showed local scenes and were finely produced. This is a set worth having.
Subsequent Cyprus stamp issues for KGVI and QEII followed in this tradition of high quality, scenic stamps.

In 1960, Cyprus became a self governing Republic and overprinted the current QEII Cyprus stamp set in Greek and Turkish to proclaim this new status. This set, Cyprus Scott # 183-97 Cyprus stamp, Cyprus stamps, Herrick Stamp became an overnight sensation in philately. Freely available at the post office, dealers were unprepared for an outpouring of Europe wide demand for this newest “European” country. Prices rose fast, speculators bought and sold and there was “heat” to the issue.
This set the stage for a number of “hot “stamp issues from Cyprus that continued until the bubble burst in 1966. Currently, stamp prices and demand are quite a bit tamer. While there are many nice topical issues , there was weak currency and prices have stagnated.
With the introduction of the Euro in 2008, stamp prices firmed up again. In 2006 there was a limited release of SPECIMEN overprinted stamps that continues this day. We believe under 100 exist of each SPECIMEN overprinted issue.
Collectors should be on the look out for a very very scarce Cyprus issue. This is the 1995 5 Pound surcharge on Scott #871. It was a limited issue, not listed yet by Scott, but listed in European catalogues. We believe fewer than 2000 exist.
