Insuring Stamp Collections

While less valuable collections can be included within home insurance policies (within a collectables and art section), those with large or expensive collections should seek expert assistance and specialist stamp collector’s insurance. This is an expert field which requires expert insurance advice and cover to ensure the correct value of your collection is understood and agreed by all parties.

At Tollgate Private Clients we work with professional valuers who will ensure your collection is correctly valued. (Without this, general insurers will often rely on the Stanley Gibbons catalogue price and most insurers will not pay out any more than 75% of the current Stanley Gibbons book value).

The stamp collections and related items we insure include:

  • • First Day Covers. A set of franked stamps, on an envelope.
  • • Commemorative stamps – special editions.
  • • Franked stamps – also called cancelled stamps which are often more valuable if they have a rare or unusual postmark.
  • • Unfranked stamps (stamps in mint condition).
  • • Mini-sheets. Sets of stamps, surrounded by a decorative, explanatory sheets.
  • • Themed stamp sets.
  • • The value of the album itself. Some of these can be collectable in themselves and quite valuable.

Please note. Many insurers require stamps to be presented in an album – not loose.
