Art, agriculture – and Prince Henriks 80th Birthday today – are the themes of the stamps issued by POST Greenland today.

The issue includes six stamps, one souvenir sheet and one Souvenir folder. The stamps will also be issued on Maxicards and First Day Covers. The stamp themes reflect historical and current as well as cultural themes in Greenland.

The June stamp issues start off with three stamps in the series “Contemporary Greenlandic Art”.  Young talents, Sissi Møller, Lisa Kreutzmann and Isak Brandt are the artists who have created the three designs. As always, these art-stamps will be issued in both complete sheets and also in a beautiful souvenir folder.

The attractive series about modern Greenlandic agriculture offers two new designs from the scenic and lush Southern Greenland. Both stamps will be issued in complete sheets.

The June stamp issues end with a joint issue with POST Danmark and Posta Faroe Islands. 2014 sees the 80th birthday of the prince consort, which will be marked on a stamp from each post service in the Royal Union. The stamp will be issued in a complete sheet, souvenir sheet and also a joint souvenir folder.
