Welcome To ECI ~ On February 7, 2017 we celebrated our thirteenth anniversary as an organization of like minded collectors who are dedicated solely to the promotion, and dissemination of information and ideas about encased coinage. We exist as a medium to bring collectors together in a friendly, professional and relaxed atmosphere where they have an opportunity to exchange information, display photos and engage in lively conversation.

Membership in ECI is dues free and open to all honorable folk who collect and trade in encased coins. Whether a novice or a long time seasoned collector, all are welcome to join our 641 active members from seventeen countries. You can register electronically above. If a member, please tell a collecting friend about ECI.

This Website is best viewed with the screen resolution setting of 800x600. Any other setting will prove to be unsatisfactory especially on wide large screen laptops which default to higher resolution settings. We have noticed that some new Vista OS systems ship with the higher settings as default.

The information contained herein has been collected from a variety of sources and by a variety of organizations and individuals, all considered reliable. All information is offered on a "best intentions" basis.

The noun exonumia is derived from two classical roots: exo, meaning "out-of" in Greek, and nummus, meaning "coin" in Latin; thus, "out[side]-of-[the category]coins", ex: encased coins. Usually, the term "exonumia" is applied to these objects in the United States, while the equivalent British term is paranumismatica.

"To be really happy and really safe, one ought to have at least two or three hobbies, and they must be real." Winston Churchill
