Waterfalls

Iceland Postal Service has issued five new stamps that have postage values of 55, 65, 75, 95, and 220 ISK named "Waterfalls" on the 18th of May 2006. The stamps are being issued to show some of the most beautiful waterfalls found in Iceland. Waterfalls are created in various ways. They are either created by river erosion, faults, crack formation, wave and glacial erosion, and various kinds of damming. Each of the waterfalls depicted on each stamp is listed as follows:

  • Faxi (55 ISK) - formed by many spring-fed streams.
  • Oxararfoss (65 ISK) - is a typical waterfall of the fault type.
  • Glymur (75 ISK) - is Iceland’s highest waterfall at 190 m.
  • Hjalparfoss (95 ISK) - created by many lava fields.
  • Skeifarfoss (220 ISK) - is a typical waterfall of the fault type.

"Waterfalls" can be purchased as singles, sheets of 10, Gift Folder with mini-sheet or FDC's. The size of each stamp is 54.95mm x 24mm, and 30mm x 48mm . The stamps will be printed by Carter Printing using the Offset Printing process with gummed paper.
