Lions silver dollar approved
Lions Club International will get a commemorative silver dollar in 2017 under the terms of legislation signed into law Oct. 5 by President Barack Obama.
A combined total of up to 400,000 of them will be struck in proof and uncirculated qualities and a $10 surcharge will be added to the issue price.
In the event of a sellout, the Lions would garner a $4 million benefit to pass on to the organization’s foundation.
Lions have 46,000 clubs worldwide and 1.35 million members. The organization was founded by Chicago businessman Melvin Jones in 1917.
