A brief description of each of the coins in the collection can be found below…

MEMENTO MORI COIN

Our Memento Mori coin serves as a physical reminder of your mortality. It is a reminder that death can come for you, me and anyone else without any warning.

Most people in our modern culture put death at the back of their minds. However, there is power in remembering your mortality. To remember that you must die is to remember that you must live.

Life can be turned upside down or even taken away in an instant, use this coin to remind you to live this life fully before your time comes.

 

AMOR FATI COIN

Our Amor Fati coin serves as a physical reminder that no matter what the external circumstances are in your life, you always have the power to change it into something positive for yourself, your loved ones and the world.

The back of the coin features a quote from Stoic emperor Marcus Aurelius: “A Blazing Fire Makes Flame And Brightness Out Of Everything That Is Thrown Into It.”

It is up to us to be that blazing fire when things are dark, and to truly love whatever happens to us.

 

SUMMUM BONUM COIN

Our Summum Bonum coin serves as a physical reminder that we should be aiming for what the Stoics called “The Highest Good” in everything that we do.

The back of the coin provides the simple reminder “Do What Is Right, Not What Is Easy”. Most of the time, the hard choices and actions are the ones that we need to take. Aiming for the “Highest Good” is usually inconvenient for our own selfish plans and motivations.

This Summum Bonum coin is a reminder to simply do what is right in everything we do. It’s simple, but it’s not easy.

CARDINAL VIRTUES COIN

The Cardinal Virtues are considered to be the four pillars of Stoicism and according to the Stoics, their understanding and embodiment is essential to living a meaningful and happy life. Acting virtuously is always the goal, and everything else that is important naturally falls into place.

The Cardinal Virtues of Stoicism are Wisdom, Courage, Justice and Temperance. No virtue is more important than the other, and many Stoics believed that to represent one is to represent them all as they are all so closely interlinked and interdependent.

 

THE VIEW FROM ABOVE COIN

The “View From Above” in Stoicism is a profound practice that the Stoic Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius and his Meditations set the foundations for.

Each of us as individuals have extremely limited views of the whole. As a result, we can easily get swept away by personal problems, situations, frustrations and confusion that seem like the world depends on it from our point of view.

Practising “The View From Above” can have a similar effect for you. It is a reminder to “Zoom Out” and see the bigger picture. It is to get the true perspective on the problems that seem to weigh so heavily on our day-to-day lives.

 

THE INNER CITADEL COIN

The journey within, the retreat inside, introspection, the path home, self-enquiry and the soul are just some of the terms that refer to the same inward journey that the Stoics referred to as the Inner Citadel.

The Stoics, sages and the wisest people to have ever lived realised that everything takes place inside of us. Anger, jealousy, misery, frustration, joy, peace. It all happens inside. Our opinions about the outside world happen inside of us. Even an irritating noise is only “irritating” inside of us. Without our inner irritation, it is just a noise.

This is why the Stoics – most notably Marcus Aurelius – saw how important it was to cultivate, manage, explore and fortify the Inner Citadel that lies within all of us.
