120 fr: Castor oil bean plant, of the spurge family. Growing to 5 meters tall, this plant produces distinctive red capsules containing seeds. Castor oil is a slow burning fuel and has been used as far back as ancient Egypt to light lamps.
300 fr: Hooded Vultures, from a 1993 birds issue. This species, widespread throughout Sub-Saharan Africa, is tame and lives in close proximity to human dwellings, earning it the nickname "garbage collector."
270fr: 3rd Pan-African Music Festival, held in Brazzaville in August, 2001. This artistic stamp design incorporates the map of the African continent framed in drums and festive colors and symbols, with three musicians within the borders of the map.

12,000p: this 1996 shows a local wasp species in a simple format. This stamp is denominated in pesos, but since c. 2000, Guinea-Bissau has adopted the CFA franc as its currency to facilitate regional trade
