Macao Post and Telecommunications Bureau will issue the stamp theme “120th Anniversary of Banco Nacional Ultramarino” on 20th September, 2022. The reputation of Banco Nacional Ultramarino (BNU) in Macao has been built over the course of a long and illustrious history that began in 1902, when it opened its first branch and became Macao’s first note-issuing bank in 1905. With a broad cultural background and Portuguese legacy, the BNU has succeeded and evolved to become one of the top financial institutions in Macao, providing financial products and high-quality services to both retail and corporate customers.


This issue includes a set of four stamps and one souvenir sheet. The design incorporates BNU’s 120th anniversary logo, and its historical landmark building with bank note symbol patterns and sailing ships. BNU’s corporate red line represents the leading line that travels through time from the seafaring days of the past to the present, and remains at the forefront of innovation to fulfill its mission and serve society.
