PMG Registry Featured Set: United Arab Emirates Complete Set

Posted on 9/21/2021

This month’s featured set belongs to K.Alhashemi

With the recent completion of the Summer Olympics, we now hop on a 10-hour flight from last month’s featured set in Japan and make a stop at the United Arab Emirates. The UAE 1973-Date, Complete, Including Varieties PMG Registry Set by K.Alhashemi, found here, is definitely worthy of recognition.

The complete UAE PMG set is a popular one, currently boasting 28 participating sets, and Alhashemi stands out from the crowd. Alhashemi began assembling his collection in late 2019, and he has been carefully upgrading his set to where he now sits at 100% completion!

With 81 notes required, filling this set is no easy task. There are a few other collectors who are inching close to 100%, but as of this moment, this collector is currently the only participant who can boast 100% completion.

K.Alhashemi has gone the extra mile by adding comments and images for all 81 notes. This participant holds a lofty second place with many high-grade PMG examples, such as the one below. Check out his other high-grade PMG examples in his slideshow here and see the evolution of UAE currency from its beginnings in 1973 through today’s date.
