British Commonwealth Stamps  »  Malaysia and Federal States

Here you will find a fine selection of Commonwealth stamps from Malaysia and the Malaysian Federal States

Malaysia is a country in Southeast Asia consisting of thirteen states and three Federal Territories.

All states in Malaysia produce their own stamps, though most states have the same definitive stamps. Malaysia started issuing stamps after independence from the United Kingdom on 31 August 1957.

STRAITS SETTLEMENTS  When the Settlements became a crown colony in 1867, they began issuing their own stamps, not least because they adopted a currency based on 96 cents to a silver dollar. Beginning on 1 September 1867, nine types in the existing stocks of Indian stamps were overprinted with a crown and a new value in cents. Stamps printed by De La Rue for the Settlements started arriving in December; they are notable for a prominent white frame around the profile of Victoria, inscribed "STRAITS SETTLEMENTS POSTAGE". The set of nine values, 2c to 96c, appeared gradually, with the 30c value not being issued until 1872.

Shortages from 1879 through 1882 forced the production of various surcharges, until new 5c and 10c stamps arrived in January 1882. This was not the end of difficulties, and additional surcharges appear regularly until the end of the century.
