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.
- Copper coin is about 1/2 ounce, or 15 grams of bullion grade pure copper.
Also available in iron and silver:
The product is treated to look as if it has been handled and circulated. This process is done by hand, and it is both an art and a science, coloring and patinas will vary. No two are exactly the same! Coins are struck one at a time in the USA using antique machinery and traditional coining techniques.
*Laboratory testing shows that, when cleaned regularly, antimicrobial copper surfaces kill greater than 99.9% of the following bacteria within 2 hours of exposure: MRSA, VRE, Staphylococcus aureus, Enterobacter aerogenes, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and E. coli O157:H7. Antimicrobial copper surfaces are a supplement to and not a substitute for standard infection control practices and have been shown to reduce microbial contamination, but do not necessarily prevent cross contamination or infections; users must continue to follow all current infection control practices.

I first bought 1 coin to see how well they were made. The order arrived sooner than I had expected and the coin was done beautifully. I have since bought other coins that I do carry with me daily, as well as some of their Fine Silver coins to just collect and save. Beautiful work done and detail work is second to none. I'm not done buying coins from them. Even have friends who like the coins and want to order.
The product came very quickly from abroad, elegant packaging, and the product itself is definetely worth the money.
Never recieved the item, tracking never updated to say it had left the United States
Didn't recieve my order.
These are very well done. They've got a high level of detail and a nice weight considering their size. I only wish they were bigger, twice the size maybe. A great addition to any coin or memento mori collection.
