“Bank Simpanan Nasional represents a new way in our efforts to instill thrift so that the people will be encouraged to save their money. It will maintain the high standards of the Post Office Savings Bank and at the same time bring several changes in keeping with present time. I hope that with the launching of Bank Simpanan Nasional today, it will develop as a major saving institution and will expand the savings campaign of the government an anti-inflationary move and quicken the pace of national development. Therefore Bank Simpanan Nasional has an important role in the lives of the people and National Development.”

The BSN logo has been revitalized to better reflect our role and function in today’s Malaysia. While staying true to the original logo’s strength and equity, it has been evolved to feature a friendlier, more vibrant and contemporary look.
The “pohon pitis” (coin tree) symbol which forms the main theme of the logo is an adaptation of the one made of tin metal bearing 13 coins issued by Sultan Muhammad IV of the State of Kelantan in 1903 when it was still a tributary state of Siam? On one side of the coin was inscribed “THURIBA FI ZUL-HIJJAH SANAT 1321”, i.e., struck in the month of Zul-hijjah 1903. On the reverse was featured “BELANJAAN KERAJAAN KELANTAN”, i.e., currency of the Government of Kelantan. The coin or “pitis”, which in local Kelantanese dialect means money, was one of the denominations in circulation in Kelantan until 1920.
A customised logotype has been created to provide a more stylish and progressive flair to the logo.
The letters BSN have been retained in capital letters to signify solid strength and stability.
Our logo colours have also been changed to a fresh teal and white to respectively symbolise trustworthiness and reliability.
The Pohon Pitis
The money tree symbol, which represents growth and wealth, is retained but modified with a modern graphic treatment.
The number of coins on the tree has been increased from 13 to 14 coins to represent all of Malaysia’s states and federal territories.
This shows that BSN serves every state and territory and everyone in the nation has easy access to the bank’s solutions.
BSN was accredited the coveted ISO 9001:2008 certification from the international certification bodies of SIRIM QAS International Sdn. Bhd. and IQ Net for work process in the General Administration Division as well as for SSP management processes.
With recognition from these international bodies, we are now able to develop and provide even more premium quality services to our customers.
In the course of our journey through the years, we’ve also picked up numerous awards.
