2017 1 Dollar Silver Lions Club Commemorative Proof
A Shining Celebration of Community Service!
Two lions facing outward from the letter "L" in royal blue and gold. It's a familiar logo -- one you've seen numerous times on town signs, restaurant counters and donation bins. Perhaps your grandfather had it sewn on a jacket or one of your parents wore a pin that featured it proudly. It's a symbol of the world's largest service club organization with over 1.35 million members in more than 45,000 clubs worldwide -- including friends, family and maybe even you! It's the Lions Club International, and the United States Mint has the perfect way to celebrate this organization's 100th anniversary!
This 2017 Lions Club International Centennial Silver Dollar Proof is the first U.S. Mint commemorative for 2017 and honors one of the few service organizations ever chosen by the program. The literal heads of this legal-tender one dollar proof features the iconic Lions Club International logo along with the profile of Chicago business leader and founder Melvin Jones. Flip the proof over, and you'll find a family of lions embodying both the organization's namesake and the embodiment of fidelity which, together with courage, strength and activity, serve as the Lions Club International's guiding principles.
Struck multiple times each on specially-treated 90% pure silver planchets, these commemorative proofs showcase beautiful mirrored surfaces and crisp details. Your 2017 Lions Club International Centennial Commemorative Proof will arrive to you in the exact condition as it left the U.S. Mint. In addition, a portion of the original mint proceeds will go toward supporting Lions Club International's ongoing global humanitarian efforts -- preserving sight, combating disability, promoting health, serving youth and providing disaster relief. Only 400,000 of these proofs, along with their Brilliant Uncirculated condition counterparts, will be minted -- that's a limited amount to spread over more than a million members worldwide! Don't miss out on this chance to commemorate 100 years of bringing people together one community at a time. Order yours today!
