Start a new specialty collection of Cocos (Keeling) Islands stamps today with this convenient, money-saving set. The Cocos (Keeling) Islands make up one of Australia's external territories and, as such, their postage stamps have an interesting history. Located in the Indian Ocean, the Cocos (Keeling) Islands have been managed in turn by Great Britain (Singapore) and Australia. The island's first postal agency was extablished in 1933, but was not made permanent until 1952. The first stamps were issued in June 1963 under British control, and it wasn't until 1979 that the Cocos (Keeling) Islands gained postal independence. In 1994, Australia officially took over all postal activities on the islands. Get 50 stamps honoring all this history today.
