Guyana BRITISH GUIANA 1C MAGENTA The most expensive postage stamp in the world It is actually just a small piece of paper, magenta-colored and not much bigger than a thumbprint - but since June it has been the most expensive postage stamp in the world - "the British Guiana"! The rare "British Guiana 1c magenta" from 1856 achieved the auction record of 9.5 million dollars (7 million euros) on June 17, 2014 at the famous Sotheby’s auction house in New York. A buyer bidding by phone, whose identity was not disclosed, won the bid after just 5 minutes!
The 2.5 x 3.2 cm stamp, which by the way is the only important stamp that is still missing in the private stamp collection of the British royal family, has not been on public display since 1986! We are all the more pleased that today we are able to present you this interesting block of stamps, which was issued by the Guyanese postal administration especially for the record auction of the world's most expensive stamps.
