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)

Excellent coin!

I was so happy with this purchase that I purchased two more for my boys for when they get older. The quality is really fantastic. My only wish is that it was a little bigger or heavier so I could feel it in my pocket instead of doing that panicked pants pat down to make sure it hadn’t fallen out.

Another way to collect silver! Detail maintains the SPM standard of craftmanship.

Always reliable!

These coins have quickly become my go to gift, to remind people "to Live". With so many people around me dying in the pandemic, these have been a crowd favorite at the funeral homes, wakes, funerals I attend! 10/10 would buy again, although I wish I didn't need to. :(

Unique & detailed

I love this coin so much I ordered a second in case I lose the first. I'm indecisive at times, & I'm keeping this in my wallet for those coin-toss moments. Awesome design & detail on both sides, & I love the shape.
