In this month’s Newswire, learn how to purchase the Lions Clubs International silver dollar coin, watch a video about a past Peace Poster Contest winner and where she is now, get started on your next Worldwide Week of Service project, and more!
In celebration of a century of humanitarian service, Lions Clubs worked with the United States Mint to produce a limited edition, professionally crafted silver dollar coin. This coin is a limited edition. No more than 400,000 will be created. Once sold out, no more coins will be made. Each coin is packaged in its own beautiful presentation case and includes a certificate of authenticity. For each coin sold, USD$10 is authorized to be paid to LCIF. This represents a USD$4 million opportunity to improve the lives of people in need through LCIF initiatives around the world.
For a limited time only, you can purchase this historic keepsake for the low, introductory price of US$47.95 only through the U.S. Mint! But hurry: this offer expires at 3:00 pm EST on February 21, 2017.
Since 1988, millions of children have participated in the Lions International Peace Poster Contest.
