Arizona became a state in 1912 and that state seal includes the phrase DITAT DEUS, meaning GOD ENRICHES. 

 

There are many symbols in the seal that depict the economic base of the State of Arizona.  In the background is a mountain range with the sun rising behind the peaks. At the right side of the range of mountains is a storage reservoir (a lake) and a dam. In the middle are irrigated fields and orchards. In the lower right side of the seal is grazing cattle. To the left, on a mountainside, is a quartz mill with a miner with a pick and shovel.

Heritage Mint, Ltd. Belt Buckles were produced in Solid Brass in the USA by American Craftsmen.  Each design featured deep sculptured relief and three-dimensional styling.  The master sculptures were created with the same artistic skill and meticulous detailing that goes into the making of coins designated for minting.  The hand cast original is duplicated in sub-maters used to form sand molds.  Molten brass, heated to 2000o F. in small crucibles, was poured into the sand molds.  Once cooled, each buckle was individually removed from the mold, smoothed and finished in 3 handwork steps, to impart the smooth, lustrous look that gives a living effect to the finished buckle.  A centuries old, time consuming process. But the only way to achieve the magnificent look, feel and quality that reflects the authenticity of the Heritage Mint, Ltd. Belt Buckles.
