Greenland began issuing paper currency in the very early 19th century. The first example may be a Serial No. 2, 1 Rigsdaler note that Stack’s Bowers will sell in its Paper Money session at a 3-day auction next month in New York. Extremely rare and listed in “fine-very fine” condition, it’s expected to realize $30,000-$50,000.
Another rare item from Greenland in the January 9th sale is a 1911 Five Kroner Serial Number “1” note. It features an engraved vignette of a Polar Bear on ice with a glacial backdrop, and is rated in “About Uncirculated-Uncirculated” condition. It’s estimated at $25,000-$35,000.
