Philately

Each year, Posta tal Musograd issues a limited number of stamps for the Federated Micronations ("FM"), sometimes specifically dedicated to one of the Member States of the FM. The stamps are printed by the company yourstamps located in Balangrad City.

Post tal Musograd is famous for the design and quality of their stamps. They are laser-printed on gummed paper and professionally perforated. The design is done by local and international artists.

Posta tal Musograd performs postal services in four member states of the Federated Micronations, Dershowo Musograd, Balanda Republic, Repubblica Naquarnia and Scientific Republic of Murwillumbah. In addition to the current general permanent series "Australian Landscapes", permanent stamp series are issued for all four of these. For 2021/2022 it is planned to issue a new general permanent issue, displaying traditional buildings from all parts of the FM.

State oriented issues are sold in the respective state and the philatelic offices in Balangrad City and Musograd City. In contrast to other postal services, though, all stamps issued by Posta tal Musograd are valid in all states served by the company.

Additionally, a number of commemorative stamps are issued each year, some oriented towards individual states, like the traditional Musogradian Independence Day (October 3rd) issues or the Naquarnian "Dante Alighieri" issue. Local and international artists and important personalities are also featured, and there are also stamps with political themes like the two Ukraine issues or the 2015 Charlie Hebdo issues. In such cases, Posta tal Musograd follows the directives of the State Department of the Federated Micronations.

All stamps where no designer information is given were designed by the Chief Graphic Designer of Posta tal Musograd, J.Schwarz.

Posta tal Musograd has completed the documentation of all issues since 1985 on this webpage, starting with the most current issues. Not all issues are available for sale, though. The issues before 2002 were not printed by yourstamps as the company was only founded in that year, but by Posta tal Musograd and local printers. For these issues, we have added information on the political background as it is in many cases needed to understand the stamp designs.

The images usually have a 150dpi resolution in regards to the original stamps. As an example, the 2014 "Year of the Horse" issue below has got a total width over both stamps of 72mm. For larger blocks or similar, a smaller resolution might be selected, in most cases 80% of the above resolution. This will be noted with the stamps.
