China’s first stamps appeared in 1878 and had dragons on them! They are known as “large dragon stamps” and are very rare. I wish I had one of them, but the nearest I can offer you is a an image of a stamp from 1897.

I looked hard for other dragon stamps and was disappointed to find I had very few. However I was pleased to find this dragon's head on a Norwegian stamp.
|Norway - 1972|
Viking longships had dragon heads like this on their prows. However I have not been able to confim whether these are dragons on these other stamps from Scandinavia. Perhaps someone can tell me whether they are.
I looked hard to find stamps with komodo dragons but had to give up as my stamps from Indonesia had pangolins.
I was on much safer ground closer to home as a dragon is always depicted on the regional issues from Wales.

1971 was the year Breat Britain changed from pounds, shillings and pence to decimal currency.
|Wales - Commonwealth Games 1958|
My favourite dragon stamp is one I don't possess - it's from the set of mythical creatures.
