Part of our 2022 Motivation collection.
Hand-crafted from start to finish, this stamped brass coin features the Latin phrase PER IGNEM RENOVATUR SPES around the bottom edge of the coin, which means “Through fire, hope is renewed.” The Roman numerals for 2021 (MMXXI, two thousand and twenty-one) are in the center of the coin over an anvil.
While this past year had its own challenges and variety of experiences, we want to view 2021 as an opportunity for growth that we can carry into the new year and that we had a chance to forge strength and reshape ourselves on the anvil of life in the past year. We have passed through fire and now we can move forward into a more hopeful future.
“Just as nature takes every obstacle, every impediment, and works around it—turns it to its purposes, incorporates it into itself—so, too, a rational being can turn each setback into raw material and use it to achieve its goal.” — Marcus Aurelius
