We are a society of collectors of stamps and postal items from Greek-speaking territories and have about 90 members. Our society was founded more than 55 years ago.

As to stamp collecting, Greece is a very special country. Naturally, the classical antiquity has a prominent place. But also, the turbulent political developments in the Balkans are clearly visible on all sorts of stamps and postal items. Therefore Greece is not only attractive to the ordinary stampcollector, but also to historically interested and thematic collectors.

The society offers many possibilities of adding items to your collection. Four times a year there is a members' meeting. There you can buy stamps and bid for one or more lots at an extensive auction. The prices at this auction are very moderate. If you cannot attend, you can bid in writing.


You can expect the following activities from our society:

  • Four times a year our magazine "Hermes".
  • Four times a year a members' meeting in Zeist in The Netherlands, which can be easily reached by car or train. The meeting includes a lecture and an auction.
  • Publications on Greek stamps and postal history.
  • An extensive library where you can borrow books and articles.
  • Our legacy committee, which advises on sales and acts for you if necessary.
  • We have a Studygroup for members who like to do specialised research.
