POST TENEBRAS LUX "After Darkness Comes Light" - Brass Coin Necklace



Part of our 2021 Motivation collection.

Hand-crafted from start to finish, this stamped brass coin features the Latin phrase POST TENEBRAS LUX around the edge of the coin, which means “After darkness comes light.” The Roman numerals for 2020 (MMXX, two thousand and twenty) are in the center of the coin, framed by olive branches.

While many will want to forget this year, we want to encourage you to never forget it and to use it to build a better future for yourself.

“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

This past year has been dark and difficult for a number of reasons for all people, and we have all been looking toward the end of 2020 as toward a light at the end of the tunnel. Here’s to a lighter 2021, or at least a 2021 where we can carry more light and hope and compassion with us through any more darkness that may come our way.


  • Coin pendant is 1" in diameter.

Purchase this coin as a keychain instead of a necklace here.

If you are unsure about which chain length to order, please read our suggestions on the FAQ page.

Please note: All our brass pendants are raw brass, meaning they are not electroplated and will develop a beautiful patina over time. We recommend polishing it with a soft cloth to help keep your pendant's original shine if you prefer the bright metal look.

Just perfect

I am an ICU Nurse. I bought five of these for my colleagues who went through the fire and back with me last year. They are good quality and workmanship. I will be buying more.

Love it!

I’m really enjoying my “post tenebres lux” necklace. It’s meaningful, elegant, and masculine. Great work!
