ACTA NON VERBA "Deeds Not Words" - Brass Coin Necklace


Hand-crafted from start to finish, this stamped coin features the Latin phrase ACTA NON VERBA, which means “Deeds, not words.”

ACTA NON VERBA is the reminder that while words have great power, our actions reveal who we truly are. The call to act on our convictions, to fight for the good that we believe in is the ultimate expression of a desire to make our world better.

  • 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.


All of our customers are part of our crew, and we take care of our own. If you have any issues with your order, we will do everything we can to fix the problem.

Acta non verba

Great company, very fast and great attention to detail. Bought this for my son Midshipman at the United States Merchant Marine Academy. It’s the academy’s motto, and something they truly aspire to. He wears it every day. The beaded band could be a little stronger he broke it twice.

A present for a grandson

My eldest grandson turned 18 in May. He also will be beginning his freshman year in university this coming fall. I purchased this, and another (Nosce te ipsum) coin, for him as part of his birthday gifts. My intent was to provide him with tangible reminders of things I have tried to teach him by example as he was growing up. Thank you Maritime for making this possible. PRODUCT SUGGESTION: Key rings with these and other Latin expressions for those who may not like necklaces.

looks great

Honestly time will tell. First impression is that it seems like a durable product. Give careful consideration to which length you pick. I was a little surprised at how short the 18" fit. I am overall happy with it though.
