Memento Mori / Memento Vivere Reminder Niobium Coin, Purple and Gold

Niobium Coin

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.

Awesome

I love it, the coin itself is super cool and pretty. I also admire the packaging with the wax stamps and that my name was hand written on the envelope. The touch of personalization was a pleasant surprise. It was also interesting to see the details in its making with the force, even though I don't understand what it means. I also enjoyed reading the bits of information about the phrases "memento mori" and "memento vivre." All around, just really cool and I'm glad I got a coin that I can carry around with me. Thank you
