Charles Darwin and Darwinian images have appeared on postage stamps since 1935, in Ecuador. Since then at least sixty countries have now published Darwin stamps.
The selection of over 100 Darwin stamps below are from the collection of the Turkish historian of science Cemil Ozan Ceyhan who has kindly shared them. He aims to create a complete collection of Darwin stamps and hopefully the list on this page will eventually represent a complete catalogue.
Ozan writes that "this collection can also be seen as a tool for a different perspective on how different countries perceive Darwin."
Darwin Online has been the source for a surprising number of stamps- in addition to countless other publications and broadcasts (see here). Those which used Darwin Online images in the list below are marked with *. Those reproduced images with permission are marked with **.
For further details or to assist with the collection, please contact Ozan via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
