Philtrust Bank

New Issue alert:

PRESS RELEASE: PHLPost launches commemorative stamps to mark Philtrust bank 100 years

The Philippine Postal Corporation (PHLPost) will issue stamps to commemorate the Centennial Anniversary (100 years) of Philtrust Bank, known as the Philippine Trust Company, one of the oldest private universal banks in the Philippines.

The stamp features the iconic façade and the corner domed tower of the Philtrust Bank Building in Binondo, Manila which was the earliest known Art Nouveau structure and one of the district’s most distinct landmarks.

The first institution to engage in the trust business under Philippine law, Philtrust started its operations on October 21, 1916 at the corner of Muelle del Banco Nacional and Calle T. Pinpin in Escolta Manila.

The bank was established in recognition to the increasing need for trust services such as guardianships (guardianships of deceased veterans’ children), receiverships, assignee ships, and custodianships of wills and states.

At present, its head office is located along UN Avenue in Manila, and has 56 branches all over the country, continuously serving the banking needs of the people.

PHLPost has printed 101,000 copies of the stamps, to be sold at P12 each. The layout of the stamps was done by in-house graphic artist Victorino Z. Serevo.
The stamps and official first day cover are now available at the Post Shop, Central Post Office, Door 203, Liwasang Bonifacio, Manila and area post offices nationwide. For inquiries, please call 527-01-08 or 527-01-32.
