Stamp collection Insurance from Assetsure is available from our highly trained sales and support staff who have expert knowledge in providing specialist insurance to cover stamps either on an individual basis or in collections; we can also insure other items of scripophily

Insuring your collection

Usually, the home insurer is the first port of call when it comes to covering valuable items such as stamps, however often a stamp collection grows over a period of time and after a number of years the collector can often without realising it be in possession of a very valuable asset that is no longer adequately insured under the existing insurers policy either because of threshold limits or policy terms, conditions and restrictions. Stamps are renowned for increasing in value, are actively collected and traded.

Why are we different?

Unlike many insurers, we are able to offer stamp collection insurance starting with a single stamp so immediately you know that your policy for your items will be insured on the correct footing. We would expect your stamps to be kept at your main residence but we will consider collections that are stored by third parties on your behalf subject to full details being provided at the time of quotation.

Our Assetsure policy wording also has features and benefits that are not found under a standard home insurance policy wording and you may find the terms and conditions are a little less onerous as well.

As you collection grows, you can make alterations to your policy cover safe in the knowledge that no thresholds will have been breached, and your stamps will be listed on a schedule of insurance with a policy underwritten at the world’s oldest insurance institution, Lloyd’s of London.

What can we offer?

Our Assetsure coin collection insurance policy is underwritten at Lloyd’s of London and provides a specialist policy wording with features and benefits required by stamp collectors.

Some of the feature and benefits of our policy are as follows.

All Risks Insurance- We provide physical loss or damage for your stamps on an “All Risks” basis.

Single Item or Collections. Unlike many insurers we are happy to quote for a single item or collections, the choice is yours.

Specified Items- We can individually list your items on a schedule giving you the peace of mind that all your items are accurately listed with the current sum insured applicable.

Cover for online purchasesIf you purchase an item online, our policy automatically includes cover whilst it is being shipped to your home address – no need to buy expensive additional insurance from the retailer.

Defective Title Insurance- For your items purchased during the period that your collection has been insured with us, if someone claims the item is not rightfully yours and you have to return the item, will reimburse you up to the amount you paid for the item.

Recent Acquisition Cover.

We will provide cover for you and allow you 30 days to inform us of recently acquired items.

Accidental Loss

Cover for the Accidental Loss of Stamps

Stamp Collectors are known to take great pride in the stamps they own and also great care with their safe keeping. That said, stamps are small and can be easily lost, especially when moving a collection or part of a collection from one place to another.

We provide cover for accidental loss and from a single stamp to the whole collection.

Accidental Damage

Accidents happen, we ensure that your stamps can be repaired.

Accidental Damage

Cover for actual physical damage to your Stamps

Every stamp collector will know the basics of how stamps are graded and in essence, the better the grade the better the value. Whilst great care is taken when handling stamps, their delicate nature makes them easy to damage.

Physical Damage to your stamps is covered by our policy against accidents or other perils that effect household contents such as fires, floods or escape of water.

Pairs / Sets Cover

Some items are more valuable as a set, our cover makes sure you are covered in the event of the set being damaged or incomplete

Pairs / Sets Cover

If you stamp is a part of a pair or set, the whole collection value can be affected by a claim

We provide “Pairs& Sets” insurance as standard - if any items which have an increased value because they form part of a pair or set are lost or damaged, any payment we make will take account of the increased value.

We will thus ensure that we compensate you if following the loss or damage to one item, the value of a pair or set is affected

For full details of this cover, please refer to our policy.


Unfortunately items get stolen, we make sure you are covered if the worse happens.
