This beautiful ceremonial peace bell was dedicated on October 2, 2006 at Christchurch, New Zealand's official peace city.  It is a replica of the original World Peace Bell gifted to the United Nations in 1954 and is one of only 19 such bells around the world.  It is made of coins and medals from 106 countries, including New Zealand.
