Lesotho

Lesotho Flag & Coat

Lesotho is a small landlocked country within the borders of South Africa.  Its capital is Maseru.  Previously known as Basutoland, the country declared independence from the United Kingdom in October 1966.

The first stamps of Lesotho were issued on the day independence was granted.

A month later the 1961-1963 stamps of Basutoland were overprinted “Lesotho”.  In 1979 the currency on the stamp was changed from South African Rand to the currency of Lesotho, namely lisente (s) and maloti (m).
