EXCLUSIVE! We have commissioned the nation's oldest foundry (Osborne Mint) to mint Opsgear custom Challenge Coins in .999 silver*!
The Liberty Bell's inscription is from the Bible (King James version): "Proclaim Liberty Throughout All the Land Unto All the Inhabitants thereof." This verse refers to the "Jubilee", or the instructions to the Israelites to return property and free slaves every 50 years.
The State House bell, now known as the Liberty Bell, rang in the tower of the Pennsylvania State House. Today, we call that building Independence Hall.
No one recorded when or why the Liberty Bell first cracked, but the most likely explanation is that a narrow split developed in the early 1840's after nearly 90 years of hard use. No one living today has heard the bell ring freely with its clapper, but computer modeling provides some clues into the sound of the Liberty Bell.
US Shipping only! We will not ship silver out of the country!
Why Stack Silver?
Challenge Coins have traditionally been minted in a zinc alloy, but why buy zinc when you can stack silver with your Challenge Coins?
In the words of SD Bullion, "Some stack silver because it is a proven store of wealth while other silver stackers use it as a system to save capital for the long haul. Some stackers like the notoriety of buying silver bullion in larger quantities. Most would argue they stack silver as a hedge against economic downturns or emergencies."
If you want this challenge coin at a cheaper price point, it is ALSO available in pure copper at a much lower price than silver!
* .999 silver is referred to as "three nines fine". It is 99.9% pure, and is the most common maximum purity level bullion sold at the major silver foundries. In contrast, silver coins are typically between 80% and 90% pure, and the silver used in jewelry is often 92.5% pure and is referred to as "925 silver".
