IMPORTANT: This coin has become very rare to come by so between the rarity of the coin bullion and the prices of silver going up, I recommend you don't wait for the price to drop as it will certainly only go up. In fact, I only am selling it at this price now to pick up a few quick honest reviews and after that, I need to raise the price to make any profit for our charity cause with the Wounded Warrior Project to which this benefits. Expect the price of this band to go up another 25% more in the next week or two.
ABOUT THE COIN:
Memento Mori or the Day of the Dead is celebrated by far more than is often realized. Dance of Death (15th century fresco). No matter one's station in life, the Dance of Death unites all. Plato's Phaedo, where the death of Socrates is recounted, introduces the idea that the proper practice of philosophy is zed. This was practiced by Puritans, the Spanish, Mexico, and in many cultures most of which all remind us both of our loved ones now passed and as a further reminder that life is fleeting and something none of us escape so it should be cherished while we have it.
This Silver round serves as a reminder to all mortals that time is fleeting and every minute counts. Death respects no one and comes on quickly. The Last Laugh is depicted with laughing dead man, skulls, hourglasses and reaping blades. This type of funeral art was popular in medieval times through the Victorian era and serves to remind one of their own mortality.
The Anonymous Mint graciously crowns the OWL as its reverse logo. The owl represents wisdom, intelligence, mystery, transition, secrets and protection. In ancient symbolism, the owl represented guardianship of the underworld and protection of the dead. Owl has been known as ruler of the night, seer of souls and keeper of spirits that had passed from one plane to another. During medieval times, it was fabled that owls were actually priestesses or wizards in disguise.
This beautiful 1 oz Silver Round - Memento Mori is purchased in uncirculated mint condition blemish free and converted as you can see into a beautiful ring by punching a small hole in the middle and literally turning it inside out so the full detail remains intact both inside and out.

This ring is a thing of beauty. Very impressed with the quality and how clear the raised relief is kept intact to show the details that were what got my attention in the first place.

I want to start off by saying Michael is a consummate professional that cares about the customer and quality of his product. His responses are lighting fast and I couldn’t be happier with the ring I received. I purchased the Memento Mori ring in silver with dark patina finish. The quality of the ring is top notch. The ring has a nice weight to it and super comfortable to wear. I have very small hands and went with the 9mm band width. Fits like a glove! Thanks Michael I’ll be back for the Archangel Michael ring!

Bigger than anticipated difficult to wear when you have small fingers.
