Penguin Stamps

Penguins are fascinating creatures, and it’s no wonder that stamp collecting enthusiasts enjoy collecting stamps featuring these elegant, endearing and often humorous birds. Penguins are flightless birds, and they reside almost exclusively south of the equator, in Antarctica, Australia, South Africa, and the Galápagos Islands.

Definitely among our most popular types of stamps, these beautiful penguin postage stamps feature Antarctic and marine wildlife, fish, seals, whales, and of course, penguins. Penguin stamps are indeed one of the most popular bird stamps to collect, along with owls, flamingos, parrots, waterfowl and sea birds.
