Memento Mori Iron Coin - Memento Vivere Reminder Token

Sale price$27.94


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.

A Coin To Remember Them By

A coin to remember them by, a coin on the altar, a coin of such craftsmanship, a coin that will never falter.

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.


All around top notch quality. Absolutely love it and carry it with me.

Remember To Live

Great customer service!
Momento Mori coin was in great condition and packaged with great care.


Unfortunately lost it during a trip but it was good quality, looks amazing, was a bit smaller then I expected but that’s my fault for not looking at the size specs but even then the quality was amazing
