Lions Clubs International Century of Service Commemorative Coin
Commemorative Coin Bill passes both U.S. House and Senate and now goes to the President for his signature!
In recognition of our 100th Anniversary in 2017, LCI is leading efforts to mint 400,000 silver dollars. This is the first step to commemorate our centennial - while raising 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.
Lions Clubs International Century of Service Commemorative Coin Act
In June 2011, the "Lions Clubs International Century of Service Commemorative Coin Act," S. 1299/H.R. 2139, was introduced in the U.S. Congress by Senator Jerry Moran, a Lion, and Congressman Peter Roskam thanks to Sandy Spring Lions Club, District 22-C, who formally proposed this opportunity to publicize our accomplishments and raise funds for the Lions Clubs International Foundation. Congressman Larry Kissell joined his colleague in the House as the lead co-sponsor of H.R. 2139, giving the bill bi-partisan support from the date of introduction.
