MEMENTO MORI "Remember You Will Die"/ MEMENTO VIVERE "Remember To Live" - Double Sided Thick Coin Necklace


This hand-stamped heavy stainless steel or solid brass coin features the Latin phrase MEMENTO MORI on one side and MEMENTO VIVERE on the other side.

MEMENTO MORI means "Remember you will die." Let this side of the pendant remind you to live every day to its fullest potential, for we are not promised tomorrow. This is not a morbid message, but instead a reminder to make the most of every moment you are given. Life is fleeting, so treasure every gift, and guide others to that same appreciation for life.

MEMENTO VIVERE means “Remember to live.” It's easy to allow the tides of life to carry us along into passivity. We have to fight this tendency and remember to live our lives to the fullest as we walk through every day. This side of the pendant is a reminder to take some risks, take some rest, and appreciate every piece of joy that life has to offer.

We appreciate the dual nature of this juxtaposition of ideals, and enjoy the contrast that the two phrases create. Wear this pendant with the same side always presented to a viewer, or switch between the two sides depending on which phrase you want to focus on for the day.

Coin pendant is 1" in diameter.

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.

I still haven’t received the necklace. Per FedEx, it’s been stuck in Minnesota for the last week. They tell me to be patient and you ask for a review. I may leave a better review if I ever get the necklace.

I like that the totem is not flashy but as it dangles and I feel it on my chest (speaking as someone who generally doesn't wear necklaces) it's nice to be routinely reminded to be aware and mindful. It also patinas well and is not irritating to the skin.
