Commemorative Stamps

Stamps are the story of us, and what a powerful story they each tell. America's greatest people, places and moments are memorialized here, honored in the art and story of commemorative stamps.
Here, Heritage is our Hero®.

  • The Stamp Act, passed by the British Parliament on March 22, 1765, required American colonists to pay tax on a wide array of paper materials. This imposition galvanized and united the colonists, setting them on a path toward revolution and independence. This stamp commemorates the 250th anniversary of the repeal of the Stamp Act.
