Welcome to the Home Page of the

Launceston Philatelic Society Limited.

ACN 151 343 761  ABN 84 151 343 761

You are visitor No.36633 to this site.

The Society was founded in 1946 by a group of people who had a common interest, stamp collecting and exhibiting. The Society has continued to foster philately since that date and at present has a very active membership. Some of the members interests are Maritime Exploration, Tasmanian Railway Parcel Stamps, Australian Pre-decimal, Tasmanian Post Office Directional markings and Stamp Duties just to mention a few. There are also many members who are just interested in collecting a specific country or the world in general.

The Society holds general meetings twice a month at the Max Fry Hall in Trevallyn commencing at 7:30pm. The formal part of the meeting is usually very short which is followed by a philatelic sale; members display and we concluded with an opportunity to purchase from the latest exchange sheets.
In June 2011 the Society became a Company Limited by Guarentee.


Exhibitors here is a general forum site that may be worth Looking at, some very helpfull hints on producing a competitive exhibit.
