History


The Malta Philatelic Society is a not-for-profit-organisation set up on 7th March 1966 and aims to encourage the study of postage stamps and the educational hobby of stamp collecting.


Being Malta's national society supporting the study and collecting of stamps, a major part of the Society's effort is in fact concentrated upon the education of collectors and the general public.


The Society specifically promotes the specialised study of Malta, its stamps, postal history and related areas. The Society within its own limitations attempts to preserve this part of our heritage, particularly (but not exclusively) by publishing and circulating its own prestigious award-winning Journal, at least twice a year.


This publication is edited by Dr. A. Bonnici KM MD our President.
