Memento Mori / Memento Vivere Reminder Coin

Solid Copper Coin

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.

Cool because it’s different. Octagonal shape, the copper one is has great contrast and looks great and goes well with a leather wallet and micarta handled knives if you do the whole edc get up. Otherwise it’s a great talking piece and fidget object

Remember to live b4 you die

A solid, heavy copper coin. And octagonal! I look forward to the patina it will develop over time. My first purchase, but not my last :)
