Coffin Memento Mori Memento Vivere Copper



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.

The Real Deal!

The Toe Pincher Memento Mori/Vivere coin is another beautifully crafted work of metal art from our mates at S.P.M.
No matter how 'fantastical' something may be in their collection, it arrives in style, looking even better than advertised, and with an authentic feel that makes it seem like a treasure pulled through time into your hands! #PyrateApproved every time!

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.

Shire Post Mint coins are struck one at a time in West Fork, Arkansas, USA using solid metals, hand-engraved designs, antique machinery and traditional coining techniques. For antiqued coins, the coloring/patina process is done by hand, and it is both an art and a science so coins will vary slightly. Our unique packaging includes a description of each coin and translations if applicable.

We collaborate with many artists to create our coins. Learn more about our artists.
