Ring for Freedom

Just Like the Liberty Bell, this exact replica of the Liberty Bell in Raleigh, North Carolina is the same size, weight, and material as the original. Therefore, it has the same tone that the Liberty Bell would have if it could be rung. This bell, cast in France, weighs 2,080 pounds. It is 85 percent copper and three feet tall from lip to crown. The bell has a twelve-foot circumference and measures three inches thick at the lip. The U.S. Department of the Treasury presented the bell to North Carolina in 1950. It is one of over fifty replica bells that America's copper industry has donated to encourage participation in the Independence Savings Bond Program.
