British Commonwealth Stamps  »  Northern Rhodesia

Northern Rhodesia was initially administered under charter by the British South Africa Company and formed by it in 1911 by amalgamating North-Western Rhodesia and North-Eastern Rhodesia. Although it had features of a charter colony the territory's treaties and charter gave it protectorate status. From 1924 it was administered by the United Kingdom government as an official British protectorate. 1st Stamps issued 1925.

 The British government issued postage stamps for Northern Rhodesia beginning on April 1, 1925, using a design featuring a giraffe and elephant, the usual profile of King George V, and inscribed "NORTHERN RHODESIA." The same design was used in 1938 but with a profile of George VI, and again in 1953 when Elizabeth II became Queen.

Northern Rhodesia resumed issuing its own stamps on December 1, 1963, with a definitive series all featuring the same design, the colony's coat of arms and a three-quarter portrait of the Queen. These were superseded by issues by Zambia in the following year.

Nearly all of the stamps of Northern Rhodesia are inexpensively available, with the exception of the 7s6d and 20s of 1925
