Rotary was founded in Chicago by attorney Paul P. Harris on 23 February 1905. The first international club was formed in 1910 in Winnepeg, Canada. By 1921 clubs had been formed on 6 continents including Australia. The Perth Mint in conjunction with Australia Post issued a Stamp & Coin set with an issue of 7500.
