Cooper was a founder and the first president (1869-78) of the Philatelic Society of London, the predecessor of today's Royal Philatelic Society London. His Australian postage stamps, sold to Judge Frederick Philbrick in 1878 for £3000 (the first four-figure price for a collection), became part of Ferrary's celebrated collection.The Sir Daniel Cooper Lectures, sponsored by the Royal Philatelic Society, are in his honor.
