Death is an inevitability for us all in life, but at times, there are those who can forget that death will come for them as well. That Roman general exuded great hubris following both his victory at war and the massive response he got from the people of Rome when he was welcomed back with a victory parade. His slaves comment in his ear, memento mori, translates from the ancient Latin to English as either remember death or remember that you die.
The obverse side of 1 oz Memento Mori Silver Rounds comes with a depiction of a skeleton, a clear and well-known symbol of death. Around the design element, there are three additional skull designs, including one that has crossbones behind it. There are also four hourglasses that represent the passing of the sands of time, the reality that we all live on a clock and that our time will come.
On the reverse field of Memento Mori Silver Rounds is an image of the logo for the Anonymous Mint. The mint logo replicates a unique version of the heraldic eagle of the United States. The front-facing owl is depicted with a crown above its head bearing the initials of the Anonymous Mint. The owl is clutching three arrows in its talons with a cluster of 13 stars over its head arranged in lines of six, four, and three stars.
