First Stamp of Cocos Islands
First Stamp of Cocos Islands

The first stamps were issued for the Cocos Islands in 1963. After the change of currency to the dollar, Australian stamps were used between 1966 and 1969, and from then were issued for the Cocos Islands in the new currency. Cocos Islands stamps are a blend of themes of local interest and themes aimed at the thematic collectors market. The stamps for the Cocos Islands were issued by the Australian Post Office between 1963 and 1979 and were also valid for use in Australia. Between 1979 and 1994 there was an independent stamp issuing policy. Since 1994, the stamps for the Cocos Islands have been issued by Australia Post and have also been valid for use in Australia,  just as the stamps of Australia are valid on the Cocos Islands.
