Glen Stephens The Biggest Stamp Dealer in the Southern Hemisphere



  Gift Certificates 

…  Glen Stephens Gift Certificates  …



One of the most popular things to buy for family members, colleagues, overseas stamp friends or pen-friends, etc.  These have sold like crazy since I introduced them.

And the reason my Certificates sell so well is that I sell them for 10% LESS THAN FACE value to encourage their wide usage!  A $A100 certificate costs you only $A90 etc.  A $A200 version is only $A180, and so on.  The more new clients these attract, the better in my view.

The discount offered is clearly meant to do just that - attract a possible new client to my site.  All good businesses realise attracting a new client will cost them some money. 




These as you can see are a superb GIFT idea as they are pretty classy looking on a large A4 size signed ornate Certificate.  All are hand numbered and hand signed by me, in same pen as other data.  You may request these Certificates in any face value denomination you choose in $A, with a MINIMUM of $A100  (= around ~$US70) and a maximum of $A1,000.  

Whatever the face value is specified as, you pay 10% less.  i.e. a $A100 certificate costs you $A90, and a $A500 one costs $A450 etc.  Each Certificate is hand signed and dated by myself, and will be mailed tracked post either to you, or direct to the gift recipient - your choice entirely.  Safe and secure. 

The recipient always retains the Gift Certificate as a keepsake, and hence a permanent reminder of your thoughtfulness and generosity …. long after it is redeemed.  I have all serial numbers and redemptions logged here, so do not need the original returned to me.  If Certificate 1068 is logged as $200 value, the bearer has $200 to spend.     


Payment as always can be made via any credit card at no surcharge, or $A Bank Transfer, or $A Money Order etc.



These are a great gift to hint to the family to get you - for a birthday or Christmas gift.  Or to give to a spouse or relative, for Mother’s Day or Father’s Day etc. 

If your Dad collects stamps, and has been “meaning” for years to order that 2000 PO Year album, set of Gibbons Catalogues, Christmas 1971 Block 25, 1840 “Penny Black”,  10 new stockbooks, box of Hagner Sheets, or a 10/- used Kangaroo etc, but never has the spare 100 bucks to hand - mail him one of these, and he can make HIS exact choice, and not be a cent out of pocket! 

And remember your recipient is paying my regular lowball prices to buy the required items - NOT “retail”.  They can order cheap priced lots right off my lists on the website, or my offers on or  or accessories, or send me a Wants List etc.  A far more lasting and remembered gift than another pair of slippers, a bottle of Port, or a few music CDs etc!

And I know lots of folks have correspondents overseas they like to exchange stamp gifts with each year, especially around Christmas time etc.

It is always tricky to know EXACTLY what your friend is missing or needs most, and it is of course often indelicate to ask directly, so these certificates take the guesswork out of all that and your friend gets EXACTLY what they need. 

The choice is theirs, not yours.  And these of course can be used for friends or relatives whether living in Australia or overseas. It does not matter - postage and shipping charges for their order are even included within the Certificate value, so your recipient pays NOTHING for their stamps, OR the shipping.  If it is a 5/- Kangaroo costing $95 and $5 Registered Post - their one $100 Certificate covers it all.

So no matter WHERE on the globe you or the recipient lives, they can readily access all 100 pages of my website, stampboards, and the stamp bargains therein.  Or, I can of course email them my monthly special offers so they can check current offers.

Several stamp clubs have ordered these as competition/incentive/raffle prizes, as it allows their always limited budgets to go that 10% further.  As far as I know, I am the only stamp dealer on earth to offer a 10% discount in this fashion.  

You can order these on-line NOW at my SECURE site and quote Stock Code 621FG

  All Gift Certificates are valid for fully 12 months from date of ordering and are then void.  Unused credit is not refundable, and full card value can be used as part payment of order value, i.e. a $A100 card used for a $A120 purchase requires only a $A20 “gap” payment.  Cards are good for 99.9% of items on my website - I’ll advise if any order does not qualify.  Exclusions are mainly newly discounted goods, most Bullion products, and mint “under face postage” type offers etc, that are by definition, “nett-price” items etc.  Enquire first before ordering, if not sure.  Any client can order or redeem Maximum TWO Gift Certificates in any 12 month period.  Certificates must be used at ONE time, Orders not exceeding the face value of this Certificate attract no refund. (i.e. an order totalling $96.80 using a $A100 Certificate attracts no refund, to save administration!)  


 All sales will be billed in Australian dollars.   All credit cards accepted without any fee to purchase these.

Search this site



Search all my 300+ web pages! Simply type in what you are looking for. "Penny Black", "Latvia", "Imprints", "Morocco", "Fungi" "Year Books", etc! Using quotes ( " ) is more accurate for multi word searches - i.e. "Australian FDC" gives FAR more specific matches than simply Australian FDC if used with no quotes. Search is NOT case sensitive. Tip - keep the search word singular - "Machin" yields  far more matches than "Machins" etc.




Most 4 figure items like these on this page only appear at Public Stamp Auction.  You THEN need to pay 15-20% extra on top of the hammer price - for the nasty, nasty "Buyer Commission".  As well the associated GST taxes then added to that commission, and then GST added on the postage and handling and insurance etc.  AND then often another 3% on top of all that, to use a credit card like Amex or Diners!  So your invoice can often be 25%-30% MORE than you bid, if you pay by cards.

These commissions pay for the MASSIVE overhead of the auctions. Their dozen or so staff, Director Fees, fancy rented buildings, Deluxe catalogues, and $2,000 a page full colour ads in magazines all around the globe etc.  I have none of this overhead.  I work on my own - from home.  No rent, no staff, no fancy catalogues or $2000 ads. Just fast turnover and low prices, and a “done on the CHEAP” old-school website as you can see!

All prices on this page are nett - NO extra taxes or commissions are added to the price.  KNOW in advance what you are up for!  And I NEVER charge buyers extra for using their credit cards.  NEVER.  That is absurd, insulting, and pure gouging, but the world’s leading auction houses seem to all hate Amex cards, as you will doubtless realise. Use them FEE FREE for my offers.

In my near 40 years full time selling stamps, I have hardly auctioned one stamp.  I do not believe in it.  My huge website, due to clever links and marketing, gets far more visitors than most large local auctions, and always has.  Coming up to FORTY MILLION visitors is living testament to that.  I am pleased to sell direct - at fair sensible prices, so you know EXACTLY where you stand. You buy direct off me, and YOU the customer get the savings.

And as many of my clients are overseas, remember EVERY price here is in AUSTRALIAN dollars.  Go check how cheap these "Pacific Peso" prices really are on:  And most importantly, the way I ship, you generally avoid the nasty UK 20% VAT - and the similar European and NZ and Canada import and GST taxes etc.

As with ALL my sales, payment is tailored to suit YOU.  If you see something for $A1,000 that will mean a divorce case if you buy it outright, I am happy to do a “Lay-By” or layaway.  I can debit your credit card 4 debits of $A250 or whatever suits. There is NO price penalty whatever for you to use this system - even if you use credit cards. Just let me know what suits.  Happy reading!  Glen
