The Stamp Year

Welcome to yet another Stamp Year, and to new motives that inspire both to writing and collecting.

January 14

Swedish Museum of Natural History Centennial

""

This year marks the centennial of the Swedish Museum of Natural History, sometimes called the Palace of Nature. The museum with several buildings was erected in 1907–1916 and contains the results of men's and women's thirst for knowledge through the centuries. The Museum of Natural History is the largest museum in Sweden and contains over ten million fossils, animals, plants and fungi.

Europa 2016 – Think Green

""

Each year the members of PostEurop issue EUROPA-stamps on a common theme. One new twist is that all stamp issuers in the PostEurop area are using the same motif. This year's theme is the environment. PostNord works actively to take environmental and sustainability responsibilities seriously and have set clear, measurable goals. Among other things, we will reduce our carbon emissions by 40 percent in eleven years.

White-tailed Eagle

""

We send increasing numbers of heavy items as the online shopping continues to grow. Hence the need for stamps with higher denomination. The stamp White-tailed Eagle with denomination SEK 50 is a part of the requested theme of birds. More stamps depicting birds will be issued in August. The White-tailed Eagle stamp was designed and engraved by Lars Sjööblom after a painting from the mid 19th century by Ferdinand von Wright.

Royal jubilees

""

Two anniversaries 2016
Carl XVI Gustaf was born April 30, 1946 at Haga Palace. When his father Prince Gustaf Adolf died in a plane crash in 1947 Carl Gustaf moved up a step in the succession. On September 15, 1973 Gustav VI Adolf died and was succeeded by his grandson, Carl XVI Gustaf. The wedding with Silvia Sommerlath took place June 19, 1976, and this year both the King's 70th birthday and Silvias 40 years as queen are celebrated.

Bridges

""

Architectural and technical challenges
The five bridges on the stamps represent several different eras, building techniques and architectural design. Before iron, steel and concrete began to dominate as building material, bridges were built in stone and wood. The builders were forced to resort to large margins to ensure the strength of the construction, but with today's advanced software it becomes possible to design more precise and slender solutions.

Food in Sweden

Nordic food culture
The stamp advisory committee have received many suggestions for foods as stamp motif. These stamps tell us that our cuisine is a result of the influence of food expression from other cultures. Did you know that you can go to postnord.se if you have suggestions for a stamp motif?

Northern lights

Northern Lights

Colorful draperies in the sky
The Northern Lights is a natural phenomenon that is hard to explain for someone who is not an expert, but so much easier to admire. Most often seen in the far north, but in rare cases, like in autumn 2015, it has been possible to see the northern lights much further south in Sweden. Northern lights are the subject of this winter’s international greetings.

Booklet: 10 stamps. 5 motifs. SEK 13

Deer

""

Deer will decorate the domestic stamps this winter. Deer are herbivores and feed on leaves, shoots, twigs, flowers, fruits and sometimes grass. In most deer species males and females live separated most of the year, females often in small flocks of closely related individuals. They usually get one or two calves each year. In Sweden there are five different deer species: fallow deer, red deer, reindeer, deer and elk.
