COIN OF LIFE AND DEATH

Between the understanding of one’s own mortality and the recognition of life on Earth as a beautiful opportunity, there is a captivating and beautiful dichotomy in holding the concepts of Life and Death together.

The macabre Latin Christian phrase of antiquity, “Memento mori”, acts as a succinct mantra in today’s modern world. “Remember that you have to die”, it states, prompting appreciation of life’s fleeting condition.

Memento vivere (Latin: “Remember you have to live.”) supports the notion that life is to be celebrated. Have fun while you are here, and remember that life can start today.

Love this! The coat is strong enough for a lengthy and satisfying patina. The art is great with the added floral details and the lettering. Fits perfectly in most pouches and other things like coin pockets. Great stone to add to the collection.

SPM'S details work is evident in this piece. The most interesting coins are those that are not round.

Not your typical Memento Mori coin

The coffin shape is a fitting shape for this type of message. The detail work that is SPM's trademark is ever present.

Great detail on this token I’ve been carrying it every day since I got it and I fidget with it a lot, there’s minimal wear in the blacked copper.
