Guernsey Post launches Crypto stamps

Guernsey with become the first British island to market Crypto collectibles, when Guernsey Post releases digital stamps later this month.

NFTs, or Non Fungible Tokens, are unique digital assets.

They are considered valuable because they cannot be duplicated, so they can be owned, then collected or traded online.

From 24 July 2024, collectors will be able to buy Guernsey’s first crypto stamps.

Guernsey Post says it wants to create a link between the physical world of collecting stamps and the digital.

The collection features two Golden Guernsey Goats, called Billy and Nanny, who are wearing Guernsey jumpers.

They are set against the local landscape, at what look like an artist's impression of L'Ancresse and Vazon. 

The digital versions are more abstract. 

Guernsey Post's Bridget Yabsley says the venture into Crypto Collectibles is a new opportunity:

“More than 80 years after Guernsey issued its first locally produced stamps, we are excited to enter this new market with the launch of Guernsey Crypto Stamps.

It will definitely put Guernsey on the map in regards to those collectors who don't traditionally collect the physical stamps, there are a multitude of people out there who base their collections on the NFTs and Crypto technologies."
