Centennial Service Challenge
Lions Club International announced a Global initiative to serve 100 million people by 2017. The Centennial Service Challenge is a humanitarian initiative that brings Lions Clubs around the world together in service to celebrate the Association’s 100th anniversary in 2017. For nearly 100 years, Lions Clubs have served their communities and touched the lives of millions of people. Over the next 3 ½ years, Lions Clubs will work to achieve the goal of serving at least 100 million people. Lions Club International is the largest service club organization in the world. Its 1.35 million members in more than 46,000 Clubs are serving communities in more than 200 countries and geographical areas around the globe. BE PROUD TO BE A LION!

COIN BILL   Lion Clubs International Century of Service Commemorative Coin Act signed into law!!!  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,” 1299/H.R. 2139 achieved 295 sponsors and co-sponsors in the U.S. House of Representative 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!

Coin Waiting List    Now that the legislation is passed and signed into law, LCI commemorative coins can be purchased from January through December 2017 from the U.S. Mint or by phone 1-800-USA-MINT. Commemorative coins are always in great demand among coin collectors; therefore, please add you name to the waiting list.
