Hong Kong's First Postage Stamp

December 8, 1862 – The issue of Hong Kong's first postage stamp.

Although the Post Office in Hong Kong was founded in August 1841, it was not until the 8 December 1862 that the first postage stamps were issued. The design of the first set of stamps featured a portrait of Queen Victoria which was engraved by Jean Ferdinand Joubert. The early stamps were printed by line-engraved method by De La Rue of Great Britain.
