Hi and welcome to KoalaStamps, your online store for stamps from Oceania, Asia and Europe.
I'm Rod Tilyard. My interests are philately, Tilyard genealogy, computing and family.
I spent my career in computing as a programmer, systems analyst, consultant, sales account manager and IT manager; retiring late 2009 and relocating to Devonport in Tasmania from Melbourne, along with wife June and daughter Kimberly.
Programming and stamp collecting are in my DNA, so after the designing, coding and testing phases were completed early 2015, the KoalaStamps website went live that same year, providing an outlet for four decades of stamp stockpiling.
In three short years, thousands of collectors from over 100 countries have stopped by and added to their collections.
I'm fully immersed in our great hobby every day and look forward to continuing to provide you with the very best quality singles and sets, both mint and (very) fine used that are affordably priced under retail value.
I supply quality stamps for your collection: Australia, Austria, Belgium, China, Christmas Is, Cocos (Keeling) Is, Cook Is, Denmark, Faroe Is, Fiji, Finland, France, French Polynesia, Greenland, Iceland, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Nauru, Norfolk Is, Norway, Papua New Guinea, Pitcairn Is, Russia, Samoa, Solomon Is, Sweden, Switzerland, Tonga, UK and Vatican City.
Unless mentioned, all stamps are complete and free of rust, stains, tears, thins, holes, creases, and short perfs.
- MNH are unused stamps with original gum and have not been hinged.
- MLH stamps have no hinge or remnant, just minor gum disturbance where once hinged.
- MH stamps have a full or part hinge.
- MNG are unused stamps without gum.
- Used stamps are always very fine.
