Memento Mori Silver Coin - Memento Vivere Reminder Token

Sale price$46.25


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.

  • Solid Silver coin
  • 1/2 Troy ounce or 16 grams of bullion grade pure.
  • 1" (2.5 cm) diameter
  • It is stamped on the bottom edge with (999 FS) meaning (99.9% Fine Silver)

Definitely Unique

I look at it a lot. It is definitely something to have. It's crazy something so small could have such a big meaning and impact. I carry it with me everyday.

Thank you for sharing. It brings us a lot of joy to know that the objects we make are meaningful after they leave our hands.

Absolutely stunning

I can't get over this coin, it is now my every day carry. It feels fantastic, the hexagon shape makes it very satisfying to fiddle with in my hand. I love the meaning behind it as well, I got this coin to remind myself to live and it feels so good to have it in my pocket everywhere I go.

I'm glad it's meaningful to you!
