Memento Mori Silver Coin - Memento Vivere Reminder Token

There is a long history of Memento Mori reminders, including coins. We have added our own spin on the concept and included a new reverse side, “Memento Vivere” which translates to “remember that you have to live.” We believe there is a beautiful balance between accepting mortality and embracing life.

Memento mori (Latin: "Remember that you have to die.") is the medieval Latin Christian theory and practice of reflection on mortality. Especially as a means of considering the vanity of earthly life and the transient nature of all earthly goods and pursuits.

Memento vivere (Latin: "Remember you have to live.") Know that your time is short in the grand scheme of things. So have fun while you are here.

  • Solid Silver coin
  • 1/2 Troy ounce or 16 grams of bullion grade pure.
  • 1" (2.5 cm) diameter
  • It is stamped on the bottom edge with (999 FS) meaning (99.9% Fine Silver)

Your coins remind me of Ichabod’s
skulls. His skulls serve as judges
and they sentence you to both life and death.
Very captivating product! Congratulations!

Exceeded expectations.

Beautiful coin. I ordered one last year for my son and it was such a hit I had to order another for my daughter. Great message. LOVE the wax seal.

Beautiful Coin

Great quality. Amazing detail.

Beautiful coin in silver

I’ve carried the copper Memento Mori for some time and upgraded to the silver edition. It’s just beautiful, the finest details are present, some of which aren’t visible on the copper coin. It’s in my pocket every single day.
