REDONDA

Redonda stamps printed by Format International Security Printers Ltd.

Redonda is a small uninhabited island that is part of Antigua and Barbuda. It is considered a dependency of Antigua. Between 1979 and 1991 stamps were issued in anticipation of commercial and tourist development according to Stanley Gibbons. Stanley Gibbons lists the issues in an appendix for Antigua and Barbuda. Even though the stamps are valid for prepayment of postage in Antigua they are not listed with numbers. They are not listed at all in Scott Catalog.

The Format Printers had presence between 1976 and 1987 producing several issues directly during the 1980's. Waddington's, The House of Questa and others were more heavily involved in the production of stamp issues for Redonda. Disney stamp sets were produced yearly for Redonda from 1981 onward.
