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.

Definitely Unique

I look at it a lot. It is definitely something to have. It's crazy something so small could have such a big meaning and impact. I carry it with me everyday.

Thank you for sharing. It brings us a lot of joy to know that the objects we make are meaningful after they leave our hands.

Absolutely stunning

I can't get over this coin, it is now my every day carry. It feels fantastic, the hexagon shape makes it very satisfying to fiddle with in my hand. I love the meaning behind it as well, I got this coin to remind myself to live and it feels so good to have it in my pocket everywhere I go.

I'm glad it's meaningful to you!

I got this for a friend of mine, and she absolutely loves it. It's beautifully crafted, and the weight, material, and message all come together in a perfect trio.

Shire Post Mint coins are struck one at a time in West Fork, Arkansas, USA using solid metals, hand-engraved designs, antique machinery and traditional coining techniques. For antiqued coins, the coloring/patina process is done by hand, and it is both an art and a science so coins will vary slightly. Our unique packaging includes a description of each coin and translations if applicable.

We collaborate with many artists to create our coins. Learn more about our artists.
