Spanish Nobelist stampsIn 2006, Spain issued stamps recognizing their two winners of the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine. A 0.51 € stamp showed the 1906 winner, Spanish histologist Santiago Ramón y Cajal with a diagram of nerve cells. A 0.76 € stamps showed the 1959 winner, Spanish-American biochemist and molecular biologist Severo Ochobeside a diagram of part of a DNA molecule. The 1906 award was shared with Camillo Golgi, “in recognition of their work on the structure of the nervous system.” The 1959 award was shared with Arthur Kornberg, “for their discovery of the mechanisms in the biological synthesis of ribonucleic acid and deoxyribonucleic acid.” As of 2011, these were the only two Spanish scientists to receive a Nobel prize, though five Nobel Prizes for Literature were presented to Spaniards.«
