Memento mori is closely associated with various customs and cultures around the world. In Mexico, for example, it is associated with the ritual festivals surrounding the Day of the Dead. Skull-shaped candies and bread loves with “bones” capture the reality that we should all face our mortality.
The skull and skeletal designs from memento mori artwork were commonly used in European funeral art from the Medieval Era to the Victorian Era. Individuals would have the skull engraved on tombs and headstones to denote their acceptance of their fate.
On the obverse side of 1 oz Antique Silver Memento Mori Rounds is a depiction of a laughing skeleton. Known as Last Laugh, it points to the fact that death’s last laugh at debt as your debts cannot chase you beyond the grave. The design elements include additional skulls, reaper blades, and hourglasses signifying the passage of time.
The reverse face of 1 oz Antique Silver Memento Mori Rounds includes the design of the Anonymous Mint logo. The logo has an owl in front-facing relief with an Anonymous Mint crown on its head and arrows clutched in its talons. There are 13 stars above its head and inscriptions of the weight, purity, and metal content.
