Postage stamps and postal history of the Caribbean Netherlands

 

Postage stamps and postal history of the Caribbean Netherlands

The three public bodies of Bonaire, Sint Eustatius and Saba started issuing postal stamps after the dissolution of the Netherlands Antilles. The islands form a separate postage region under the name Caribisch Nederland (English: Caribbean Netherlands). The first stamp issued showed the maps of the three islands. Stamps of similar design were issued in the other newly formed postage regions of Sint Maarten and Curaçao.[1]

The value of the current stamp is denominated in Netherlands Antillean guilders, but is expected to be replaced by US-dollar denominated stamps in 2011 when the legal currency of the islands changes. As of June 2011, new stamps are being issued by NA Post in US dollars.
