Highlights of the year:
* At the very beginning of the year on January 2nd, the Postal Authority of Germany issued adhesive and self-adhesive stamps commemorating the Bicentenary of the “Museum fuer Naturkunde in Berlin” (National Science Museum).
The Museum is one of the largest and most important museums of that type in the world. One of the spectacular artifacts at the Museum is the 14 meter high dinosaur skeleton – the biggest mounted dinosaur skeleton in the world, which is depicted on the stamps.
* Monaco and France came with joint issue stamps on June 1st and 2nd accordantly, commemorate one hundred years since foundation of The Institute of Human Paleontology (HPI) - research foundation devoted to the study of human paleontology and prehistory. It was created in 1910 mainly by Albert 1er, Sovereign Prince of Monaco, and Abbe Breuil.
* South Korea started issuing sets in a multi-year series. Each set focused on dinosaurs of a specific period of the Mesozoic. For 2010, the issue focused on dinosaurs of the Triassic. Two more sets were issued in 2011 (Jurassic) and 2012 (Cretaceous). The set was the first set to use perforations shaped like dinosaur silhouettes.
