Great Britain stamps were used on the island from 1858 with an ‘A11’ cancel, until the control passed to the local Post Office in 1860 and the first stamps for the island were introduced. To save the Colony money only one plate was engraved, with the values identified by the colour of the stamps, red for 1d, blue for 4d and green for 6d, and as a further economy the design was copied from a Revenue stamp used in South Australia. From 1883 the ‘standard’ key plate design was introduced as a set of six values to 1s.
