PCGS Set Registry Update
Sir Milton Augustus Strieby Margai’s educational journey began in 1921 at Fourah Bay College, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in history. Margai soon pursued a medical degree at Durham University College of Medicine in England and finished his studies at the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine. Upon earning his medical degree in 1928, he returned to his homeland of Sierra Leone and participated in the Colonial Medical Service, which benefited most districts within the country. A couple of years after his return to his motherland, Margai launched his political career and in 1951 was supervising the drafting process of a new constitution. He founded the Sierra Leone People’s Party in 1951 and rose to the position of its leader, a post he held until 1958. In 1961, Margai led the country of Sierra Leone to its freedom, and on May 27, 1962, he was elected as the nation’s first prime minister. Unfortunately, Margai passed away in 1964, and one of his greatest contributions to his country was advancing women’s health. PCGS has listed the First Republic 1964 Sierra Leone Proof Set for Set Registry members to build, and each obverse bears Margai’s effigy. Additional sets from various countries have been added, so please feel free to browse the PCGS Set Registry when you have a chance and you may find there is a set for almost anyone to build. The PCGS Set Registry offers many different sets from all over the world and specialty sets for advanced collectors. We appreciate your continued patronage, all the best in building your sets, and Happy Collecting, folks!
