The very first French stamp issue was the “Ceres” issue, introduced on January 1st, 1849. Issued during the Second Republic of France, this stamp depicted the Roman goddess of growing plants, with a grape crown atop her head. Just a couple years later, Napoleon Bonaparte had his own image printed on stamps in 1851. Following the Franco-Prussian War, the Ceres series of France stamps continued to be issued in the years that followed and would be later reprinted in 1937.

Since the mid-1800s, French stamps have come a long way. Our France stamp collection features many scenes from some of the greatest moments in France’s history, famous people, etc., from Napoleon Bonaparte’s presidency and emperorship to early French aircraft, to the early explorers, to the Eiffel Tower; we have a huge stamp collection!
