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.

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.
This coin has the weight and design I had sought after. It's perfect, and I carry it every day! Thanks so much!
The coin arrived in amazing packaging that already had me smiling ear to ear, but the coin itself had a beautiful heft and amazing finish that made it look just perfectly worn.
Beautifully struck, highly detailed and a cool conversation piece i can keep in my pocket. I love it
Ordered two silver boys as a 3 year anniversary gift for myself and my girlfriend excited! They came super quick in very nice packaging.
