On August 24, 1999 a small group of internet coin collectors got together in a Yahoo! Club which specialized in error coin collecting. The group wasn’t being managed very well and there were problems with spammers and unrelated topics. I found a alternative group called "Error Coins” which was completely dead but looked like it might fulfill our needs. Our small group started meeting there, but we soon found that we had no more control there than in the former group, so we decided to rebuild from scratch and Error World was born.
On this August 24th, it’s our 5th Anniversary! I will be setting up some free raffles for our many dedicated members. Thus far I plan givaways in all our active chats! We have active meetings in 5 areas throughout the week, and prizes will be awarded in each chat meeting and over the message boards. We are the club with a difference. We don’t ask you for dues and we give to our members. As the next few weeks progress, I will look into adding other special events for our anniversary. During the last five years we’ve done a lot of good and even made far more friends! EW is like a large extended family, where members can kick back and enjoy their wonderful hobby!
Technical problems in EW1 have caused us to restart our EW1 group, and former members in good standing that rejoin will be admitted right away. We will be re-inviting all our former members in groups as we go along. New members are always welcome to join us also! We’re there for our members, from expert to novice, everyone is welcome here. So what are you waiting for? Come join in the fun!
