The High Coast - World Heritage 6

Sweden Postal Service will issue four new stamps named "The High Coast- World Heritage 6" on the 27th of January 2005. The stamps depict priceless pictures of nature in the high coast regions of Sweden some 450km north of Stockholm. This is the sixth issue in the continuing series by Sweden of world heritage properties on stamps. UNESCO declared the High Coast in Norrland a world heritage property in 2000. Why this area? It is special because of the land-rise geology of the area. Since the inland ice melted 10,000 years ago, the land has risen 286m and is still rising. Nowhere else in the world is the land-rise so clear and concentrated.

"The High Coast - World Heritage 6" stamp can be purchased as booklets of 4, Collector's sheet, or FDC. The size of each stamp is 44.12mm x 26.60mm. The stamps will be printed by Sweden Post Stamps, Stockholm using the 1 color recess and 4 color Offset Printing process.
