Imprensa Nacional (1732 - present) is the national press of Portugal. Its origins lie in the Fábrica dos Caractéres, founded in 1732, which then merged with the Régia Oficina Tipográfica in 1768. In 1833, its name was changed to the Imprensa Nacional. The press publishes all manner of official government documents, from reports and maps to passports and stamps. In 1972, it merged with the national mint, the Casa da Moeda (dating to the 13th century), and was reformulated as a public corporation under the auspices of the Ministry of Finance.
