Whether it is good health and youth or general hubris from surviving the onslaughts of man and nature, it is possible for even the smartest individuals to get carried away in the concept of their own mortality.

The phrase “memento mori” comes from the Ancient Latin language. The first word is an active imperative that translates into English as “to remember” or “to bear in mind.” The second word refers to the verb “to die.” The words are often combined together to serve as a warning that one should “remember death,” or even more accurately, “remember that you die.” We can never cheat death indefinitely. Death can only be put off for a certain amount of time before it comes for what is due.
All of these 1 oz Silver Memento Mori Rounds are available to purchase brand-new from the mint. The silver rounds are housed inside of protective plastic capsules and come with proof-like visuals. This means that each round has a design element with frosted visuals and a background field with slight mirroring. The rounds also feature a thin layer of 24-karat gold covering the entire obverse and reverse field of the rounds.
On the obverse of Silver Memento Mori Rounds, you will find depictions of death throughout the design field. The skeleton in the middle of the design element almost seems to be laughing, a nod to the reality that death comes for all of us and refuses to be robbed of what is owed to him. Surrounding the edge of the design field, you will find three skulls, the top one featuring crossbones behind it, a well-known pirate symbol for death. There are also four hourglasses representing the limited time we all have in this world.
The reverse side of the 1 oz Silver Memento Mori Round comes with an image of the Anonymous Mint logo. The mint’s logo features a crowned owl in front-facing relief. The initials on the crown of “A.M.” represent the mint. The owl clutches arrows in its talons and has a cluster of 13 stars over its head.
