Description

Quintus Horatius Flaccus, known in the English-speaking world as Horace, was the leading Roman lyric poet during the time of Augustus.  For Horace, mindfulness of our own mortality was key to making us realize the importance of the moment.  “Remember that you are mortal, so seize the day” (Carpe diem).  “Carpe diem” is part of Horace’s injunction “carpe diem quam minimum credula postero,” which appears in his Odes (I.11), published in 23 BCE.

  • Contains 1 oz. Troy .999 Fine Silver
  • Obverse: The word “CARPE” encircles the top field, and the word “DIEM” in the bottom field, separated by bullet points, surrounding a draped skeleton mounted upon an apocalyptic horse, wielding a medieval spiked flail.
  • Reverse: Intaglio Mint logo set on radial burst surrounded by stippled border reading “ONE TROY OUNCE” above and “.999 FINE SILVER” below on textured background, flanked by mintage year in roman numerals “MMXXI”.
