Memento Mori / Memento Vivere Reminder Coin Necklace

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.

The silver pendant is 1/2 Troy ounce or 16 grams of bullion grade pure silver on a 30" gunmetal neckchain. It is stamped on the bottom edge with (999 FS) meaning (99.9% Fine Silver)

Making octagonal coins isn’t easy....

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. 


Note—Each order comes packed with a handwritten envelope straight from Shire Post Mint. We will make this out to whomever is on the SHIPPING ADDRESS. If you are giving this as a gift and would like a different name on the envelope, please include the recipient's name in the Special Instructions field as you complete your order.

Just what my son was looking for

My son requested this necklace for Christmas and really loved it. He also was excited about the personalized "very cool" packaging which gave the necklace an individualized gravitas.
