SEMPER PARATUS "Always Ready" - Brass Coin Necklace


Part of our Captain’s Script coin collection.

Hand-crafted from start to finish, this stamped coin features the Latin phrase SEMPER PARATUS, which means “Always ready.”

While lesser known than some of the other United States military mottos, Semper Paratus is the motto of the US Coast Guard. “Always ready” is a state of mind we should aim to embody. Pursuing conscious vigilance and preparedness for whatever may come is an indispensable virtue. When you are living Semper Paratus, you are able to offer your strength and resources in moments of crisis, rather than be a dependant or, worse yet, exacerbate the situation.

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.”
Henry Ford
