Bringing to life one of the Latin aphorisms, the creators of the coin performed an impressive piece of work, having created a beautiful sculptural image of the Grim Reaper. The central composition of the reverse is encircled with Roman numbers, thus imitating an old clock. The most prominent part of the coin is a huge inset – a real and fully-functional hourglass. In case of “Carpe Diem”, it is, perhaps, the first ever use of full-featured item embedded in the coin surface.
Struck in 2 oz of pure silver .999, this impressive coin is antique finished and created with a detailed high sculptural relief, with its original design basing on handmade plaster model. The worldwide mintage of the coin is limited to only 500 pieces. The coin is housed in an elegant black premium case.
A famous Latin aphorism, taken from the “Odes” (23 BC), a work by the Roman poet Horace, is usually translated as “seize the day”. The main idea of this phrase lies in living today and putting little trust in tomorrow. And even if the coin with the Grim Reaper and symbolism of Time refers more to “Memento Mori” or Vanitas concept, the general message is positive: your life is occurring right now, so seize the day, live and enjoy the every moment you have.
Possessing this silver coin, you become not only the owner of this piece of minting art, but something that will keep reminding you how valuable each of your life’s moment is.
