At the beginning of the twentieth century, KGH (Kongelige Grønlandske Handel – Royal Greenland Trading) started using special banknotes. These were printed in stone presses and were valid currency in Greenland’s trading posts.All the stamps in this series were drawn and engraved by artist Bertil Skov Jørgensen. Historical material and original old banknotes stored in Denmark’s National Bank, at the National Museum in Copenhagen and in POST Greenland’s archives in Nuuk, were used as source material for the artwork.The stamps, which reproduce the banknote designs, are printed in combined offset and laser etching and will be issued as full sheets and souvenir sheets.
