Shire Post Mint Memento Mori Coin - Mokume Gane

Remember to live

There's a long and storied history of memento mori reminders – from carved skulls to ancient motifs and of course, coins. Designed to be small enough to carry around on your person at all times, the Shire Post Mint Memento Mori Coin is a reminder that in life is death, and that it's up to us to make the most of our lives. 

Memento mori (Latin: "Remember that you have to die.") is the medieval Latin Christian theory and practice of reflection on mortality. Adding their own spin, the Shire Post Mint Memento Mori Coin features a reverse side with “Memento Vivere” which translates to “remember that you have to live.” 

Custom-designed and cast from Mokume Gane (also known as woodgrain metal) for their distinctive layering – the Shire Post Mint Memento Mori Coin is a timely reminder that our time is short in the grand scheme of things. So have fun while we're still alive and kickin'.
