Vatican City

Vatican-City-Flag-and-Coat

The Vatican City has been an independent city state inside the city of Rome since 1929.  It is under the full ownership of the Holy See.  It is the smallest independent state in the world, both by area as well as population.

Initially Italian stamps were used, but the first Vatican City stamps were issued in 1933.  Stamps are still being issued on a regular basis and the Vatican has a reputation for producing beautiful stamps in limited quantities. Many Romans distrust the Italian mail system and make a special trip to the Vatican to post their mail.
