Hand-crafted from start to finish, this stamped coin features the Latin phrase DUM SPIRO SPERO, which means “While I breathe, I hope.”
DUM SPIRO SPERO is a constant reminder that while we still live, nothing is futile and that hope springs eternal. Even in our darkest moments, we can remember that our state of life is in itself an act of defiance against the forces that would undo us. Fight on for as long as you draw breath, and never surrender to defeat.
This phrase is also the state motto of South Carolina, where our studio resides.
