Isaac Newton on Postage Stamps
      Many countries of the world have celebrated the achievements of Isaac Newton by issuing commemorative postage stamps. There have been in the order of 100 stamps issued to date with either an image of Newton or a reference to him on the stamp, and below is a set of thumbnail images of those that I have collected.

       Clicking on the stamp thumbnail image will link to a high resolution scan of 400 d.p.i. You can also go to a page with many of the First Day Covers's (FDC's) connected with these stamps (via the Covers link below), and via the History link, a page showing the history of Isaac Newton and how the stamps show this.

Update - 14th April 2009. It's been about 4 years since my last update of this site. I have over 200 images to add to the site, 60 or so of stamps and the rest First Day Covers from around the world. I intend to update over the next few days. I may have to redesign the site a bit to make some room so my apologies if the site is closed periodically.
