Issuance of the Antarctic Lands NFT postage stamps

Antarctic Lands NFT Postage Stamps

In order to raise funds to achieve the objectives of the Antarctic Foundation (see Part I), the ALO will issue a first series of NFTs (non-fungible tokens) symbolized in a numismatic series of stamps and coins, related to Antarctica and the Antarctic Principalities. This will allow investors to have coins and stamps of the Principality at their disposal both digitally and to trade (buy and sell) on the market through the appropriate platforms (OpenSea, Rarible, etc.).
The NFTs related to the numismatic series and coins will be offered for sale in a major international market and will have a limited circulation. NFTs will also be available for pre-order at a special price by subscribing to an exclusive white list.
Those interested in buying must have a MetaMask wallet or similar to be able to make the payment, which will be made through cryptocurrencies.
Among the themes of the NFTs will be the preservation of the environment and animals of the Antarctic continent, the history of the Principality and the programs and projects of the Antarctic (AAL) Foundation.

The issuance of the Antarctic Lands NFT postage stamps has been completed and the new stamps are already available on the market. The principalities belonging to the Antarctic Lands Organization do not have postal service. However, the Principality of Antarcticland already once issued a postage stamps to commemorate the bicentenary of the discovery of the Antarctic Lands by Fabian Gottlieb in 1821. The stamp was printed as a limited edition in 2021 and features the portrait of Fabian Gottlieb, the Pater Patriae meaning “Father of the Fatherland” and Grand Master of the Ice Knights.

The postage stamp was limited to only 1000 pieces and is rare to obtain because, due to a printing error in the name, it was promptly recalled. The design errors do not occur during printing, it occurs in an earlier process and affects the entire stamp run. Spelling mistakes, errors in the design do, when some stamps manage to reach the public, become very valuable.

Antarctic postage stamps are officially issued, usually to claim ownership over a certain sector of territory on the Antarctic continent.

The postage stamp, also known as a (postal) stamp, stamp, (postal) seal or (postal) stamp, is actually a proof of prepayment for mailings. In general, it is a small piece of paper whose most usual shape is rectangular or square, which is affixed to an envelope, and which indicates that the person sending the mail paid for the service. Nowadays they are almost not used and the payment of the shipment is certified by a stamping machine.

Release of postage stamps

The postal art often uses this format for its diffusion or commemorations of all kinds. The Antarctic Lands Organization has launched a new collection of NFT postage stamps in a limited edition of 50 each. The stamps are numbered from 01 to 50 and the entire sheet of 50 will be sold, as NFTs, with a blockchain contract that will guarantee ownership. The demand for an NFT is directly proportional to its perceived scarcity and the Antarctic Lands stamps are issued in a single sheet of 50 stamps.

The stamps will be placed in the NFT market and Antarctic Lands is listed as the issuer. The Universal Postal Union stipulates that the name of the issuing country must appear on the stamps in the Latin alphabet. The United Kingdom is exempt from this obligation as it is the first country to issue stamps.

Most Antarctic stamps are issued by Argentina, Chile and New Zealand. However, apart from the countries that maintain claims to part of Antarctica, many others have decided to honor this territory.

Poland issued a series dedicated to the animals living in Antarctica. The Czech Republic also issued a stamp illustrating the geographical map of Antarctica next to the Czech national flag. North Korea, in 1991 issued a stamp consecrating the exploration of Antarctica. There, too, the North Korean flag is present on the sides. Mongolia also decided to issue stamps with Antarctica as their theme. Issued in 1980, they celebrate the local fauna composed of the great skua, the emperor penguin and the Weddell seal. Finally, Hungary issued stamps depicting explorers such as James Cook, the first to circumnavigate Antarctica, or the British Robert Scott.

Collection of NFT postage stamps

In the age of the Internet, with the disappearance of the post office as a service for sending messages, postcards or letters, it seemed novel to us to issue a collection of NFT postage stamps .

The proceeds from the sale of our NFT postage stamps collection will be used to fund other eco-sustainable projects. A non fungible token (NFT) is a cryptographic asset that has the ability to be unique and unrepeatable. Its value is given by the market. Our collection has a base price of 10 thousand dollars per unique sheet of each NFT postage stamp. 

The collection is divided into 5 stamps of Antarctic animals in danger of extinction and 5 commemorative stamps. The 5 endangered animals are: the Emperor Penguin, the Antarctic Krill, the Antarctic Blue Whale, the Antarctic Crab, the Antarctic Blue Whale and the Adélie or Adelaide Penguin. While, the 5 commemorative stamps will be dedicated to the bicentenary of Fabian Gottlieb’s second voyage to Antarctica, the bicentenary of the founding of the Sovereign Order of the Knights of Ice, Prince Romolo I di Canisteo, the digital Antarctic and the gold Antarctic.
