We wrote the book on stamps

Collectibles Insurance was founded by an avid stamp collector, so we have a special appreciation of the passion that the world of stamps inspires—from such classics as the Inverted Jenny, the Scott #1 5-cent Benjamin Franklin, Pan-American Inverts, Prexy stamps, Washington Franklins, and the Zep Set—to the rarities and finds of tomorrow.

Having insured stamp collections of all sizes for nearly 50 years, we know how much you value your collection. That’s why we provide equally valuable features in our coverage.


A full range of protection

Our comprehensive coverage includes (but is not limited to):
  • Accidental Breakage
  • Burglary
  • Fire

  • Flood (except Zones A & V)

  • Loss in the Mail
  • Natural Disasters
  • Theft

  • Other causes of loss, unless specifically excluded from the policy.
 See Exclusions.


At home and away


We provide coverage for any scheduled location in the United States. 
But that’s not all:
  • Travel—Transit coverage protects collectible property that is temporarily away from the scheduled location, subject to policy sublimit.
  • Exhibitions—If you’re at a scheduled exhibition, show or display, coverage is provided for your collection up to the policy limit—including travel and shipping to and from the event.
  • Storage Facilities—For an additional surcharge, we offer optional insurance coverage for collectibles kept in a public storage facility (up to $100,000).


More affordable rates


Typically, you will pay less than it would cost to schedule the same items under a homeowners policy.


Less paperwork, red tape and appraisal expense


Unlike homeowners insurance, we do not require you to inventory all the separate items in your collection or pay to have them appraised. Only individual stamps and philatelic items or sets valued at $25,000 or more will need to be scheduled. (You are, however, responsible for maintaining records of your collection for insurance purposes.)


Proven and trusted


We have been protecting collections since 1966. And all coverage is provided by a carrier rated “A” by A. M. Best—the leading rating agency for the entire insurance industry.


Market value less $0 deductibles

Deductibles start at $0 for collector policies. We provide coverage for the market value of your collection for losses in excess of $50. All dealer policies have a $200 deductible.


Adding to your collection

Collections tend to grow, so your policy can be adjusted to include any additions to your collection.


Inflation coverage

You may select “Automatic Monthly Increase” as optional coverage to be added to your policy for new acquisitions and appreciation of your existing collection. Selecting this coverage will apply an automatic monthly increase of 1 percent in coverage, up to a maximum of $1 million.


We provide coverage for dealers, too


If you want to protect your dealer inventory and your clients’ collections, for which you are responsible, we also offer special Dealers Insurance. Please call us toll-free at 888-837-9537 or Contact Us.


Superior customer service

Our company was started by collectors so it’s only natural that we would pay attention to your interests and needs. And that our customer service would always be geared to the collector’s point of view. With us, it’s always personal.


Prompt and personal claim service
