History of postage stamps of the Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic.

Pridnestrovie declared its independence from Moldova on 2 September 1990 and in June 1992 postal authorities in Tiraspol, the capital and administrative center of the Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic, overprinted two definitive stamps of the Soviet Union. The overprints read: “Tiraspol / 30-VI-92” (Tiraspol / 30-June-92) and two new denominations: “20 коп” and “28 коп”. These stamps were used only from 3 to 21 July 1992 and then they were confiscated and destroyed by the Moldavian authorities in Chisinau.

On November 18, 1993 the Presidium of the PMR Supreme Council decided to issue first stamps. The first Pridnestrovian stamp was designed by Grigoriy Zakharovich Bronza and was issued on December 31, 1993.

Postage stamps of Pridnestrovie are not recognized outside the country and are valid only for domestic mailing within the country. But moldavian postage stamps are used for international mail services and postal delivery to Moldova .

On May 30, 2002 the State Unitary Enterprise “Stamp of Pridnestrovie” was established.
