Located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the bell is currently housed in the Liberty Bell Center in Independence National Historical Park and remains a symbol of the nation in the modern era. Today, the 1 oz Liberty Bell Stackable Silver Round is available to purchase from JM Bullion.
The Liberty Bell, a symbol of America, was actually commissioned by the British in 1752. In a biblical references to the Book of Leviticus, the bell was commissioned to feature lettering that read Proclaim LIBERTY throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof. When the bell first arrived in Philadelphia and was run for the very first time, it suffered a crack.
Twice, the Liberty Bell was recast in Philadelphia by local workmen John Pass and John Stow, whose last names still appear on the bell today. The Liberty Bell was originally used to summon lawmakers to legislative sessions in the city and alert citizens to meetings and proclamations.

On the obverse of the 1 oz Liberty Bell Stackable Silver Round is the image of the Liberty Bell itself, which is rumored to have been rung when the Second Continental Congress announced a vote for American independence on July 4, 1776.
