I was surprised to read that you are wondering if we plan anything special for our 50th anniversary year. Perhaps you were busy over the holidays and did not have an opportunity to read my Editorial in our Jan. 4 issue, wherein I noted that as a part of our celebration this year we will be publishing five special editions that will explore by decade the events and people that have helped to shape and influence the hobby and marketplace as we know it today. Other aspects of our 50th anniversary celebration will be announced as we approach our actual anniversary on April 21.

The online version loads very quickly and is pretty easy to use, although I find myself changing the magnification level often so I can read articles of interest.
COIN World founding Editor Dick Johnson adds:
Officially we called issue Volume 1, Number 0 the "Pilot Issue."
