Inscription.
Dedicated To You, A Free Citizen In A Free Land
This reproduction of the Liberty Bell was presented to the people of
Arizona
by direction of
The Honorable John W. Snyder
Secretary of the Treasury
As the inspirational symbol of the United States savings bonds independence drive from May 15 to July 4, 1950. It was displayed in every part of this state.

The dimension and tone are identical with those of the original Liberty Bell when it rang out our independence in 1776.

In standing before this symbol, you have the opportunity to dedicate yourself, as did our founding fathers to the principles of the individual freedom for which our nation stands.
