Lions 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 Act," S. 1299/H.R. 2139 achieved 295 sponsors and co-sponsors in the U.S. House of Representatives 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.

 Lions Clubs International

Vision Statement

To be the global leader in community and humanitarian service.

Mission Statement

To empower volunteers to serve their communities, meet humanitarian needs, encourage peace and promote international understanding through Lions clubs.


 Lions International Purposes

  • To Organize, charter and supervise service clubs to be known as Lions clubs. 
  • To Coordinate the activities and standardize the administration of Lions clubs. 
  • To Create and foster a spirit of understanding among the peoples of the world. 
  • To Promote the principles of good government and good citizenship. 
  • To Take an active interest in the civic, cultural, social and moral welfare of the community. 
  • To Unite the clubs in the bonds of friendship, good fellowship and mutual understanding. 
  • To Provide a forum for the open discussion of all matters of public interest; provided, however, that partisan politics and sectarian religion shall not be debated by club members. 
  • To Encourage service-minded people to serve their community without personal financial reward, and to encourage efficiency and promote high ethical standards in commerce, industry, professions, public works and private endeavors.

Lions Code of Ethics

  • To Show my faith in the worthiness of my vocation by industrious application to the end that I may merit a reputation for quality of service.
  • To Seek success and to demand all fair remuneration or profit as my just due, but to accept no profit or success at the price of my own self-respect lost because of unfair advantage taken or because of questionable acts on my part.
  • To Remember that in building up my business it is not necessary to tear down another's; to be loyal to my clients or customers and true to myself.
  • Whenever a doubt arises as to the right or ethics of my position or action towards others, to resolve such doubt against myself.
  • To Hold friendship as an end and not a means. To hold that true friendship exists not on account of the service performed by one to another, but that true friendship demands nothing but accepts service in the spirit in which it is given.
  • Always to bear in mind my obligations as a citizen to my nation, my state, and my community, and to give them my unswerving loyalty in word, act, and deed. To give them freely of my time, labor and means.
  • To Aid others by giving my sympathy to those in distress, my aid to the weak, and my substance to the needy.
  • To Be Careful with my criticism and liberal with my praise; to build up and not destroy.

 FOR THE RECORD - As of November 1, 2013, Lions Clubs International had 1,367,084 members in 46,332 clubs and 753 districts in 207 countries and geographic areas.
