PER ASPERA AD ASTRA "Through Hardship To The Stars" - Brass Coin Necklace


Part of our Captain’s Script coin collection.

Hand-crafted from start to finish, this stamped coin features the Latin phrase PER ASPERA AD ASTRA, which means “Through hardship, to the stars.”

This motto recognizes the truth that the best things in life come from a great effort of will, and that some hardships are inevitable. No matter what the world throws at you, relish in the challenge because the stars wait beyond the struggle.

"Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength." ~Arnold Schwarzenegger

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.

“Quality means doing it right when no one is looking.”

Great necklace

I love this necklace. The phrase has been important to me for a long time, so it's nice to have a really quality charm with it engraved on it. Plus the packaging was really nice, and the shipping was incredibly fast.
