Bhutan is a country what has issued many stamps one could describe as gimmicks. But they issued unusual stamps long before many other countries followed suit. Somehow I always liked them.Proof that I am not alone, gives a look in a catalogue. Many of the "gimmick-stamps" have become rather costly. My collection is far from being a complete one.In 2000 I ended buying new issues. But maybe I will look for selected modern stamps after that "one fine day". For now I will show my little collection one by one and also mention those issues,I do not own. I have to start with a set I do not own: In 1955 a set of four fiscals was used for postage,at least sort of. It is doubtful,that commercially use took place. Two of this set were overprinted in indian currency in 1962 (?),but it is even more doubtful,that they were ever used on a regular base. On October 10th,1962,the first regular stamp-set was issued (Mi.no. 5-11) (part I of 2) The currency of Bhutan is called Ngultrum (Nu), made up by 100 Chetrum (ch). The Ngultrum is eqivalent and pegged to the Indian Rupee.
