Map of the British Solomon Islands

The British Solomon Islands, now known as the Solomon Islands, issued revenue stamps from around 1920 to around 1968, and all are British embossed revenues overprinted BRITISH SOLOMON ISLANDS in three lines. Only four different values are recorded: a 1s value from c.1920, and £5, £10 and £50 values from c.1968. All are extremely rare and command high prices. The widely separated dates and values suggest that others exist, but are not recorded yet.[1]

No post-independence issues are recorded from the Solomon Islands
