Venezuela

Venezuela, officially the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela is situated in the northern part of South America.  It is bordered by Colombia in the west, Brazil in the south, Guyana on the east and the islands of Trinidad and Tobago, St Vincent and the Grenadines and the Netherlands Antilles in the north.  The capital is Caracas.  The country gained full independence from Spain in 1830.  Since the 1990’s  there have been many political crises and in 1999 a new constitution was implemented, but many policies implemented subsequently have led to hyperinflation, economic depression and a drastic increase in poverty.

The first stamps were issued in 1859 showing the coat of arms.  Between 1865 and 1880, British stamps were used, which can be identified with the C60 and D22 cancellation.
