Safeguarding Your Stamp Collection

Stamp or philatelic societies, clubs and associations are the lifeblood of the philatelic eco-system and are so important because they bring together people who share an interest in stamp collecting or philately. 

Stamp societies provide a forum for stamp collectors to connect, to network, to share information, develop their knowledge and skill and pursue their hobby together. Societies, whether local, regional, national or international often hold regular meetings and events, and publications dedicated to stamp collecting and related topics, so it is important to ensure the associated risks are covered by a specialist philatelic society insurance policy.

Magnet Insurance offers a tailored insurance policy to ensure financial protection against the multitude of risks faced by Stamp Societies, Clubs and Associations, including options to cover Circulating Packets for Stamp Exchange and Auctions via members, Exhibition risks, loss or damage to Stamps in transit, Public Liability, All Risks cover for collections owned by the Society, including options to cover cups, trophies and other equipment.

Protection Against Unforeseen Events

Accidents happen. Whether it’s a fire or flood, theft, burst pipe, accidental damage or loss or damage in transit, the unforeseen can have a catastrophic impact on your collection. Insuring your collection ensures that you’ll have the financial resources to recover or replace your collection in the event of such disasters. Without insurance, the loss could be irreplaceable.

This option covers stamps and association philatelic items against loss or damage from the time the property is delivered to the organising officer(s) of the Society, whilst in their possession, whilst being judged, whilst on exhibition, whilst in the custody of the organising officer(s) of the Society until returned to owners, anywhere within the UK.


To obtain the full benefit from your insurance it is important that the sums insured are adequate at all times. If they are inadequate, then in the event of a claim the amount payable will be reduced in proportion to the degree of underinsurance. We do not Index link your sums insured at renewal, so it makes sense to review the sums insured regularly.  If necessary, you should seek professional advice to ensure that the sums insured are correct.

With specialist cover, flexible options, and the peace of mind it offers, insuring your stamp society activities is not just an option—it’s a must-have.
