2017 Lions Club International Coins: Celebrate 100 years of service!

2017 Lions Club International Centennial Commemorative Dollar

To celebrate the 100th anniversary of one of the world’s most selfless organizations, the U.S. Mint struck commemorative silver dollars in both a proof and an uncirculated finish. These coins bear striking designs that provide fitting honors to the Lions Club International organization, which has helped people in need around the world.

Lions Club International is a worldwide organization that was founded in 1917 by Chicago businessman Melvin Jones. His statement, “You can’t get very far until you start doing something for somebody else,” has been the groundwork for the organization. Local clubs hold many programs for the conservation of health, the benefit of their communities, relief in disaster areas, and so much more. The organization now has more than 1,400,000 ”Lions” and over 46,000 clubs around the globe.

This Commemorative Silver Dollar program from the U.S. Mint not only recognizes the service rendered by the club over the past 100 years, but also assists their work with a donation. A $10 surcharge was included on each Lion’s Club International Silver Dollar we purchased from the U.S. Mint, which according to U.S. Law, belongs to Lions Club International and their efforts.

You can be a part of the celebration too! Purchase one of these Lions Club International Commemorative Silver Dollars from ModernCoinMart, where coins are available in both finishes. Choose from coins that have been expertly graded by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation as 69 or 70 — clear indications of quality. With a limited mintage of 400,000 coins across all finishes, and a beautifully crafted, timeless design, these commemoratives may not last long.
