US Liberty Bell Medallions | liberty bell three bells liberie liberity usa shield us shiled shileld shied chevrons sheild shields shelid ashield escucheon shild Our beloved Liberty Bell appears on several US coins, including Franklin and Kennedy half dollars, and Eisenhower silver dollars. But it appears on the reverse 'tails' side of the coin, not the obverse 'heads' side.

The Liberty Bell theme appears on many different tokens and medals, including the one in our picture and several others, as well as in jewelry.

Your piece, dated 1837, must be somewhat rare, so its value is probably a little higher than most of these common medals. However, its sad appearance, noted by your 'repulsive' evaluation of eye appeal, will render it essentially valueless.

Most Liberty Bell medallions are made of non-precious metal and they sell retail for $5 to $25 US dollars, depending on condition. If you can find one made of precious metal like gold or silver, Liberty Bell medallions are worth their weight in the precious metal. Use Kitco.com to find the current value of gold and silver.
