New Caledonia and Dependencies is an overseas territory of France, situated in the southwestern Pacific Ocean, east of Australia. The territory comprises the island of New Caledonia and a number of smaller islands and island groups. The island of New Caledonia was sighted in 1774 by British navigator Captain James Cook, who gave it the Roman name for Scotland. It was annexed by France in 1853 and was organized as an overseas territory in 1946. 

All stamps are denominated in French Francs, and carry all the "extension" of RF [République Française] to the country-name.
