Memento Mori / Memento Vivere Reminder Coin

Sale price$17.00

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.

  • Solid Copper coin

Coin design by Michael Shantz, engraved by Woody Maringer. Learn more about our artists.

Better than expected!

I really liked the look of these coins so hesitantly ordered one for my buddy and I, they shipped very fast and was blown away by the intricate artwork as well as the packaging. I have since ordered many other pieces and will continue to.

A wonderful gift.

Gave this as a birthday gift. Liked very much. This and the other minted coins are great for the person that has everything.

Perfect 7th anniversary gift!

The traditional gift for the seventh wedding anniversary is coppper so this was perfect, especially since we were married on Halloween. We bought a matching set of coins to keep with us wherever we go. They are much heavier than I expected and are packaged beautifully. Thank you!

That's so cool! Thank you for sharing. Happy anniversary!
