The welfare stamps of October 1, 1958 were dedicated to the ever topical subject of "agriculture". There are four stamps in total. The mint stamp series has a circulation of 3.150 million copies. The Michel Germany special catalog evaluates the catalog number. 297-300 mint never hinged at € 9.50.
The stamps show wonderful motifs:
- 10 + 5 Pfennig dairymaid with butter churn
- 20 + 10 Pfennig vintner in traditional costume harvesting the vines
- 40 + 10 pfennig farmer in typical clothing with a pitchfork.
- Portrait stamp of 7 + 3 Pfennig Friedrich Wilhelm Raiffeisen
One of the most famous sayings by Raiffeisen is: "What is not possible for the individual, many can do". On the groundbreaking idea that one could only do business successfully in the long term if community self-help existed, he converted the charity into the Heddersdorfer Loan Association in 1864. This created the first rural cooperative. After the establishment of trading companies, the loan association took over monetary transactions and carried out the agricultural goods trade in special departments. But then he came to the conclusion that the clubs would need their own bank in order to be able to use the benefits of banking to the club itself, so that they would meet their own needs.
An idea that has survived to this day in the Volks- und Raiffeisenbanken.
