Republik Benin   
République du Bénin
People´s Republic of Benin

The coastal area of Dahomey, on the Gulf of Guinea, Benin was occupied by the French in the 19th century. Separate stamps were issued from 1892. In 1895, the area was grouped with recently conquered inland territories to form the French colony of Dahomey. 

In November 1975, Dahomey changed its name to the People's Republic of Benin.
