About Auction

The Philas Stamp Auctions, established in 1975 is the the oldest philatelic auction service in NSW for the benefit of stamp collectors, and the future of philately. Nett proceeds of our auctions remain in NSW to foster philately - there are no shareholders and no paid staff.

Philas is a 100% Voluntary, Not-for-Profit independent organisation. You too can become a Philas helper. Check out our volunteer's page
