Keep your memento mori with you

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.

  • Copper pendant is about 1/2 ounce, or 15 grams of bullion grade pure copper. 
  • 30" gunmetal neckchain

Coin design by Michael Shantz, engraved by Woody Maringer. Learn more about our artists.

Great necklace

I replaced the chain with an amber necklace my wife made for me. It looks very nice with the misshaped beads and the detail of the pendant. I really enjoy it and have gotten a few remarks on it these last few days.
