Commemorative Coin Program

To honor the relocation and reconstruction of the London Bridge in Lake Havasu City and provide a fund raising vehicle for the many charitable and community projects of the London Bridge Rotary Club, the club sponsored the release of a "Havasu Dollar" in October, 1971.  This commemorative coin was so well received by the community, the Club decided to continue the project.  A new London Bridge Rotary Commemorative Coin has been released every October since that time to coincide with the annual anniversary celebration of the dedication of the London Bridge in Lake Havasu City, Arizona.


This year, the London Bridge Rotary Club is featuring our 48th edition of its long-running Commemorative Coin Series.  As always, on the front of the coin, the famous London Bridge is the special focus.  The Liberty Bell on the flip side of the coin reflects the 2018-19 coin theme, "Liberty, Justice and Freedom."  It honors our ancestors commitment and vision for a free nation along with the last phrase of our "Pledge of Allegiance"  

 

The "standard" coin is antiqued Bronze, and sells for $10.  The bright silver plated and "Colorized" coin sells for $20.  The "Silver three coin set" includes a standard coin, a solid one ounce .999 fine silver coin and a bright silver plated colorized coin in a display box.  It sells for $90.  The "Gold three coin set" includes a solid one ounce .999 fine silver coin, a solid one ounce .999 fine silver coin with gold overlay and a bright silver plated colorized coin in a display box. It sells for $120.  A very limited number of the one ounce .999 fine silver coin only, is available in a velvet display box.  The price is $60.  Pre-orders for all new 48th edition coins will begin to be filled November 1, 2018.


Each year, when a new coin is released, that coin becomes a part of the very popular collector coin series.  As the coins age and the available quantities diminish, the street trading price begins to increase.  Many coins have appreciated significantly over the years.  The current "street price" of our most sought after #2 (1972-73) coin is $156.00!  However, many of the coins issued in the last two decades can still be purchased for as little as $10.00.  

 

London Bridge Rotary Club Commemorative Coins are available daily at Lake Havasu City visitor's center in the London Bridge area.  Many bridge visitors buy them to have a souvenir of their visit.  Club members volunteer their time to make the coins available at large community events throughout the year.  Most all years of coins are available on this website.  These internationally collected Commemorative Coin are highly sought after as popular and legitimate collector's items and used as gifts and awards.  This very successful project has allowed the London Bridge Rotary Club to contribute close to $2 million dollars to many community charities and projects as well as support for Rotary humanitarian projects throughout the world.
