    Description

    During the time of ancient Rome, legend has it that a general returning home after being triumphant in an important battle, paraded around the entire city celebrating his victory.? He received accolades, congratulations, and compliments from the crowds.? For a moment, the general felt a great deal of pride and intense arrogance.? At that moment, a slave, who would have otherwise gone unremembered, said in a low voice, so not to be heard by anyone but his master uttered the words, ?Memento mori.?? ?Remember that you too will die.?? So profound and obvious that it remains important in Western culture even to this day.

    The concept of ?Memento mori? may seem overtly morbid to our sensibilities, but mindfulness of our own mortality is key to making us realize the importance of making the most of the time that we have on earth.

    • Obverse:?The word “MEMENTO” encircles the top field, and the word “MORI” in the bottom field, separated by artistic flourishes surround a skull in the center surrounded by items significant to the phrase, including an hourglass at 6 o’clock, a crowned skull with wings of good and evil (depicting the ascent to heaven) at 12 o’clock, skulls opposing at 3 and 9 o’clock, an extinguished candle, dice showing a roll of 7, a snail and a flower.
    • Reverse: Large Intaglio Mint logo surrounded by plain border reading ?ONE TROY OUNCE? above and ?.999 FINE SILVER,? flanked by stars.
