Expeditions in Greenland

Today POST Greenland issues a total of 5 new stamps that represent a wide range of aspects of Greenlandic culture, history, and nature.

The hypothesis on continental shift was formulated by the German polar-researcher, Alfred Wegener (1880-1930). On 1 November 1930, he celebrated his 50th birthday on the Greenlandic inland ice. A few days later he was involved in a fatal accident together with his Greenlandic companion Rasmus Villumsen during their return to the West coast. With this issue POST Greenland pays tribute to Alfred Wegener's great scientific contribution. DKK 20,75. The stamp is also available as a mini sheet, which again is included in a beautiful souvenir folder with a short report on Alfred Wegener's discoveries in Greenland.
