On October 9, 1949, the Bureau of Posts issued a set of three stamps and a souvenir sheet to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Universal Postal Union.
The stamp design featured the UPU Monument unveiled in Berne, Switzerland in 1909.
The monument consists of a central image in which five women, representing the five continents, are passing letters around the world.
