The first postage stamp "Black Penny" was released in the Great Britain in May,1840. The name of a postal miniature owes due to it's face value (1 penny) and it's black color.

He suggested to make the unify and easy method of payment of the postal correspondence: a sign with a face value for the postal service, which could be pasted on the envelope. It was a contest on the best sketch of a postage stamp. 2700 sketches were provided. The drawing depicted the profile of the Queen Victoria, made by Henry Cole, became a winner.
