About The UN Peace Bell:

The Japanese Peace Bell was presented to the United Nations in June 1954 by the United Nations Association of Japan. It was cast from metal coins collected by people from 60 different countries including children.

"The bell embodies the aspiration for peace not only of the Japanese but of the peoples of the entire world. Thus it symbolized the universality of the United Nations."
K.A.

The Peace Bell is kept in a typically Japanese structure, resembling a Shinto shrine, made of cypress wood at 42nd Street and First Avenue New York City. "Long live absolute world peace" is inscribed in Japanese on one side. The bell weighs 116 kg, is 1 m high and 0.6 m in diameter at the base.
A wooden hammer was presented in 1977. A bell cord was presented on Earth Day March 20, 1990.

It has become a tradition to ring the bell twice a year: on the first day of Spring, at the Vernal Equinox, and on 21 September to coincide with the opening of the General Assembly and International Peace Day.
