Jordan’s First Postal Tax Set

20 Oct 2018  Sat

On July 22, 1946, the Arab League passed a law that allowed Jordan to issue a postal tax stamp set. The stamps became available to the public on May 31, 1947. The purpose of Jordan’s 1947 postal tax stamps was to raise money to create a welfare fund to help and support the Palestinians in Palestine.

These are the low denomination stamps with the value between 1 mil and 5 mils. The stamps were issued in four different colours; viz. blue for 1 mil, red for 2 mils, green for 3 mils and deep red for 5 mils.

The stamps depict the Ibrahimi Mosque in Hebron in the center with king’s name on the top and the top and name of the place at the bottoms flanked by denomination in Roman and Arabic.
