Memento Mori Iron 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.

  • Solid Iron coin
  • 1" (2.5 cm) diameter
  • 1/2 ounce, or 15 grams of solid 99.9% iron
  • blackened and waxed to prevent rusting so it can be carried daily

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.

Unique little reminder to value each day

Beautiful little coin. I carry it with me most days and enjoy having it as a reminder, as well as something to fiddle with when bored or anxious about something.

You won't regret buying it.

It was made very well. I love the attention to detail. From opening the package to wax seal to the information besides the coin; I LOVE IT. The message has a simple but important meaning which is something to be reminded about, and as a coin collector, having it feels special.

Another great Shire Mint coin.

I like to keep a coin in my pocket to fidget with, I have quite the collection. This is a beautiful piece, great design. Feels heavy and its got a very different shape to other coins.

Another Momento Mori piece for the collection.

Shire Post shows again how you can make great coins with solid iron yet again. This is a good solid piece.

Good Little Reminder

The token is a fantastic reminder of exactly what is written on it. There is a nice weight to it. The edges are not sharp at all, so it hasn't damaged anything else I keep in my pocket.
