The name refers to the first ever stamp, printed in 1840. This was a British stamp featuring the head of Queen Victoria, was worth one penny and printed in black hence the nick name Penny Black. Although it is officially the first stamp it is not the rarest stamp as its print run lasted for a decade, so many millions were produced. However there were many color variations and misprints. These individual Penny Blacks have much more value.
