The theme for this year’s souvenir coin set is Hamarøy – the peninsula that became author Knut Hamsun’s own Wonderland. His close ties to the area of his childhood makes it the perfect central theme for books such as “Growth of the Soil”, “Pan” and “Victoria”.

Hamarøy is a scenic wonder featuring a scattering of small villages, numerous islands, islets and skerries, and everything from a weather beaten coastline by the Vestfjord to the mountain highlands along the border to Sweden. The lakes, forests and mountains are plentiful and inviting, and the deep fjords, steep cliffs, open seas, and powerful sea currents will take your breath away.

The name Knut Hamsun is forever linked to Hamarøy. This is where the author lived as a child and later spent some years during his adult life. In his writings, Hamsun frequently returns to the people and surroundings of the north of Norway, both on Hamarøy, and the county as a whole. Through his books, Hamsun has detailed a Wonderland that people from all over the world still want to experience. At Hamarøy you can visit his childhood home, Hamsund, Skogheim manor that he ran with his wife, Marie, between 1911-1917, and the newly opened Knut Hamsun center at Presteid with its breathtaking architecture.
