Chronological listing of official stamps issued by the United Nations (offices in New York, Geneva, and Vienna) in relation to World Cultural Heritage. Click the images to go directly to the stamps' site specific context.  

Stamps issued by The United Nations are only valid for postage mailed out from the special mail boxes established in the offices in New York, Geneva, and Vienna, not from the US proper, Switzerland proper, or Austria proper.   

Please note that only stamps are listed, not souvenir sheets, maximum cards or other stationery. Note also that there exist some series of United Nations-stamps, not directly related to World Heritage. They are the so-called definitive series: the Chinese Terracotta Army in 1997, the Australia series in 1999, the Mountain series in 2002, and the castle-series in 2004, which cover World Heritage to some -- but not full -- extent. These series are not included on this page, but appear only on the relevant site specific pages.
