Preserve the history of your favourite stamps in our new PhilaWiki

Behind every stamp, there is a story to be told that is just as compelling as its artistic design. At, you will find the world's largest online database for all things philately: the PhilaWiki. 

Launched by Österreichische Post, it was created as a treasure chest for all those fasci-nating stories behind the stamps we cherish. This project aims at preserving these sto-ries and to make valuable knowledge accessible to collectors and the public at large.

To participate, just follow these easy steps:

  • Visit
  • Find the stamp about which you have interesting things to contribute.
  • Once you have found it, go ahead and edit the article to share your insight with the rest of the world.
  • If you cannot find it, start a new article and share what you know with others.
