Celebrate America’s iconic symbol of freedom and liberty – the Liberty Bell – shown on this beautiful gold 100 Francs Proof from the Republic of the Congo. According to legend, the Liberty Bell rang to mark the first public reading of the Declaration of Independence on July 8, 1776. Originally cast in England in 1752 for the Pennsylvania State House, the bell cracked the first time it rang. So Americans John Pass and John Stow melted it down, making a new one with Pass & Stow proudly emblazed on it.
Struck in a 1/2 gram of 99.9% fine gold, this is not only one of the world’s smallest gold pieces, but it’s among the most affordable! The mirrorlike obverse displays the Liberty Bell with the words DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE 1776-2016 around it. The reverse bears theRepublic of the Congo’s coat of arms. Each coin is encapsulated and comes with a colorful, informative folder. But with a mere 5,000 minted, don’t wait to get yours!
