*Why carry a coin to help you remember death? Read this.


This coin is a catalyst for better life.

Imprinted with “memento mori,” Latin for “remember death,” it serves as a pocket-able reminder that you will one day die.

Cross-culturally—from Stoics to Buddhists to Christians—people have contemplated death with varying uses, but for the ultimate purpose of living a better life for thousands of years.

Today, we can do the same. A few examples:

  • We never know when death will find us, this spurs us to act now and appreciate this moment.

  • Death lowers any hurdle of courage we aim to leap as any fear pales in comparison.

  • Remembering death gives truer perspective, unwarped by the ego and straight from the soul.

Weighing a perfect 1oz, this pure copper coin is light enough to carry in your pocket, yet heavy enough that you won't forget its there. Designed to help you remember death, the coin is boldly imprinted with the phrase “memento mori,” a laughing skeleton, four hourglasses, and an owl (which sees the light in even night's darkest hour).

If, as I do, you carry this coin in your pocket every day, it will constantly remind you of your mortality and hold you close to all of death's extraordinary benefits.

The coin is packaged and shipped by yours truly in a burlap pouch with a note introducing the practice to its recipient.
