VST Australia – About Us

About Us

For more than 50 years, VST Australia has been a major manufacturer, wholesaler and importer and publisher of stamp catalogues, albums and accessories. We’ve developed a reputation for providing the highest quality products at competitive prices to meet the needs of our clientele..

In recent times, the business has changed hands and has been renamed VST Australia. There were numerous reasons for this change, but one of the biggest is that it allowed us to broaden our market to more than just the state of Victoria. We are now a reputable national distributor of stamp, coin and banknote accessories.

100% Australian Owned

VST Australia was formed in 1964 by Ernest Weiner and has been one of the leading wholesalers, publishers and manufactures of stamp and coin albums and accessories nationwide. After Ernest Weiner’s recent retirement, VST Australia was acquired by VST Australia. We are proudly 100% Australian owned and are a growing distribution company that places emphasis on excellence and personal service. We can deliver products in a timely manner throughout Australia to the Philatelic and Numismatists market.

Our Story

1964 saw the birth of VST Australia when Ernest Weiner purchased £300 of stamps and started working from home. This stock was made up into stamp packs and sold to newsagents and toy shops. Since then, the business has grown into one of the largest manufacturers and suppliers of accessories for the Philatelic and Numismatists industry.

In 1972, VST became an agent for Seven Seas, and this relationship remains strongly in place today. VST consolidated their position as a leading supplier when they acquired the business of their major competitor, Philatelic Wholesalers, known for manufacturing and distributing the P.W Stamp Album range. This allowed VST to become a manufacturer as well as a distributor for major brands.

In 1980, VST expanded into publishing and produced the Comprehensive Catalogue of Australia Stamps. In 2014, with Ernest Weiner wanting to retire, the business was sold to VST Australia. 2015 VST Australia became the Australian agents for Prinz and SAFE and have formed strong business relationship with many companies throughout the world supplying accessories to the Philatelic and Numismatic industry throughout the world
