From the Ancient Latin language, the phrase memento mori translates roughly as remember death. The Anonymous Mint has issued a design that perfectly captures the concept of death getting the last laugh, just as the phrase memento mori suggests. Today, you have the opportunity to get 1 oz Copper Memento Mori Rounds online from Provident Metals.
Our mortal human bodies are destined for just a fleeting moment in this world. While we often feel invincible and ageless, many tend to ignore the inevitability of death. We go about our days without realizing that death comes for everyone and that we are not in control of when that comes. If one thing is certain, we should enjoy every moment in life and make the most of our time, because death will get the last laugh.
On the obverse side of 1 oz Copper Memento Mori Rounds, you will find an image of a laughing skeleton. The skeletal figure is surrounded in the design element by a skull and crossbones at the top, reaping blades, skulls, and hourglasses. All of these symbols were popular in funerary art from the Medieval Period until the Victorian Era. There is a long engraving on this side that reads MEMENTO MORI along the bottom rim of the design field.
The reverse field of Copper Memento Mori Rounds comes with a depiction of the logo for the Anonymous Mint. The mint logo consists of an owl set in front-facing relief as it clutches arrows in its talons. The bird is crowned with a field of 13 stars over its head. The inscription ANONYMOUS MINT is found along the bottom rim of the field with a beaded element on either side.
The phrase memento mori is rumored to have been uttered to a Roman general at the height of the Roman Empire. As the general returned to the city after a successful campaign on behalf of the empire, he rode into the city in the midst of a parade in his honor. As he reveled in the attention, one of his slaves whispered the phrase in his ear as a subtle reminder that even he would someday be caught by death.
1 oz Copper Memento Mori Rounds in this listing come from the Anonymous Mint. Available in brand-new condition, the rounds are packaged in plastic flips, plastic tubes of 20, or boxes of 500 rounds. The box holds a total of 25 individual 20-round tubes.
