Here's a thematic area we appear to have missed so far - bells! Bells appear on coins and medals from countries around the world so it seems like an area that could drive participation by folks with varied collecting interests.

Post your coins/tokens/medals that include a bell in their design (PLEASE! Refrain from posting items with a bell tower that does not have a visible bell! Thanks!).

I'll get things going with a US commemorative half dollar from 1926. The coin was issued to mark the 150th anniversary of American Independence via the Declaration of Independence that was formally proclaimed on July 4, 1776.

The coin features the US Liberty Bell on its reverse. The Liberty Bell is one of the most iconic symbols of freedom in the United States. Images of the Liberty Bell have appeared on US coins, medals, tokens, savings bonds, stamps, philatelic covers, postcards and hundreds (thousands?) of other souvenir items.

The Sesquicentennial Half Dollar was designed by John Frederick Lewis and modeled by US Mint Chief Sculptor-Engraver John Sinnock. The coin features conjoined portraits of the US' First President - George Washington- and the President at the time of the Sesquicentennial - Calvin Coolidge. The coin was struck in low-relief and is often found with "rough" surfaces (especially on the portraits) and a lack of details.




For a nice overview of the Liberty Bell and its history, check out this page on the National Park Service's web site for Independence National Historic Park, the Bell's home:
