Postage stamps become “Forever”

The USPS unveils its first-ever forever stamps—the now iconic “Liberty Bell” version—which, one purchased, never go out of date.

  • The first Forever Stamp went on sale in April 2007 and it featured an image of the Liberty Bell.  In 2011, all first-class one ounce stamps became forever stamps with the exception of stamps in coils of 500, 3,000, and 10,000.
  • As the name suggests, Forever Stamps can be used to mail a one-ounce letter regardless of when the stamps are purchased or used and no matter how prices may change in the future.
  • Forever Stamps are always sold at the same price as a regular First-Class Mail stamp.
