21st January 2019

The Salvation Army in Greenland is considered a most worthy beneficiary of the proceeds from the sale of this year’s additional value-stamp. Maria Panínguak’ Kjærulff is the artist who created this stamp design. As always, this annual stamp will be issued as a full sheet, a souvenir sheet and in a beautiful souvenir folder.

There are also Arctic deserts in Greenland. This phenomenon is illustrated on two attractive stamps, the first of which will be issued on 21st January. Pierre Auzias from Uummannaq is the creator of this stamp issue, which is printed in offset.

Naja Rosing-Asvid’s informative series about ’Greenland during the Second World War – as seen by Greenlanders’ is now up to the fourth of its five issues. The two new stamps in this series are printed in combined offset and laser etching. Once again, Martin Mörck is the artist undertaking the engraving. Both stamps will also be issued in an attractive souvenir folder.

In 2017 we began our series entitled ’Abandoned Stations in Greenland’. Artists Sissi Møller and Lisbeth Karline have now each created a beautiful design that are being reproduced on the final two stamps in the series. Both stamps are printed in offset.

Martin Mörck’s attractive series about ‘Fish in Greenlandic Waters’ continues with two more stamps. These stamps will also be printed in offset.
