In recognition of our 100th Anniversary in 2017, LCI led efforts to have 400,000 silver dollar commemorative coins minted by the U.S. Treasury. Sales of the coins will raise millions to support our global mission areas for the visually impaired, disabled, youth and those affected by disaster. Lions from all over the globe are exploring similar commemorative campaigns locally.
Through the hard work and grassroots advocacy of many Lions, the "Lions Clubs International Century of Service Commemorative Coin Act," S. 1299/H.R. 2139 achieved 295 sponsors and co-sponsors in the U.S. House of Representatives and 70 sponsors and co-sponsors in the U.S. Senate before its passage by Congress. President Barack Obama signed the Lions Clubs International Century of Service Commemorative Coin Act into law on October 5, 2012!
Once available, LCI Commemorative Coins can be purchased through the United States Mint in 2017. The U.S. Mint will begin working with LCI in 2015 on the design of the coin, and in 2016 the U.S. Mint will begin making plans for marketing the 2017 coin. As details such as the design and the date of sale become available, LCI will post to this page. Any inquiries about the LCI Century of Service Commemorative Coin can be sent to LCI government relations.
