Spink's stamp department offers an annual calendar of wide-ranging auctions of general, specialist one-country and single-owner sales, often resulting in record-breaking prices.

The department has historical links to Robson Lowe, one of the greatest 20th Century philatelists, whose business was bought by Christie's in 1980 and integrated into Spink in 1995.

Spink also conducts sales in its US saleroom in New York. The acquisitions of Investphila in Lugano, Switzerland and Phila China in Hong Kong affords Spink stamp department a truly global platform for clients to buy or sell by auction, or private treaty.

Spink stamp catalogues, considered by many to be the best in the industry, not only provide clients with high quality images and descriptions, but are also an excellent source of reference material for existing and future collectors.  To find out more about Spink's stamp department please go to our contact page.
