Date first-class Royal Mail stamps costs £1


The cost of a first-class stamp will rise by 9p to 85p on 1 January 2021.

Data of the price of first-class stamps are available here.

When will a first-class Royal Mail stamp cost at least £1?

Resolves on the first day it is not possible to buy a first-class stamp from Royal Mail for less than £1 per stamp.

The question will close retroactively just before the announcement of such a price increase.

Resolves ambiguously if Royal Mail stops existing and has no obvious successor.
