The Carpe Diem Mystery Coin

Recommended Posts

I _confuzzled__by_nillemotes.gifumStunned_by_ApocalipticFaint.gif urr Shocked_by_MixedMilkChOcOlate.gifummm confused_by_forgotten5252.gifOK, this always happens to someone else. NOT TO ME!!

 

Today I came home from work and saw that a box of wine and a gold padded mailer were delivered today. Great, my wine is finally here. Wait a sec, I havent ordered any coins.Huh__by_Emotikonz.gif And ITS A GOLD PADDED MAILER. Whats going on?

I somehow managed to open the package without cutting any of my fingers off and a card that says Fragilis Est Vita, Caduem Est Tempus, Carp Diem!! Life is Fragile, Time is Fleeting, Seize the day!! and an envelope with this inside ( I see some of my cat`s fur made into the second picture...ugh).

The first picture is not even close to showing howstunning looking it is. And now I notice the picture has my "Life goes Fast, Have a Blast' sticker on my monitor stand in the background. HAS THE COIN SENDER BEEN IN MY ROOM???

 

Seriously What, Why, Who, is responsible for sending me this coin and honoring me to show it to the community first. I don`t have a clue why I was chosen. I`m still sitting here speechless and there isn`t room for all the smiley emicons to show what I am feeling now. Nor is there room for all the THANK YOU`s I want to say.

A box of wine and a great coin - a great way to end the day. CONGRATULATIONS.

Face_Palm_by_Mirz123.gif I forgot all about the wine until reading this, I should check the box to see if any bottles are broken. :)

Oh :D way cool IB!!!

When I first looked at your post I of course was drawn to the coin before I started reading...and i thought the skeleton was holding a beer stein..then I saw the neat background on the coin.

 

And a box of wine? could your day get any better? :)

That was a really great coin. Love the antique finish, could there be any other than antique for such a coin? noo.

 

To the meaning then, it is so true. Life goes by so fast, we need to stop a while sometimes and think what is meaningful and what is not.

 

Thank you mystery coiner for bringing this coin out in the fields.

 

All the best and Seize the day!

WOW!!!!! This is an amazing coin!!!!! So pretty!!!!

 

Congratulations my friend!!! :)

 

WOW!!! It reminded me the death dalers of the old times!

 

Somewhere in the 16th 17th and 18th century, when a lord of a place or a king etc, died they were making silver and big sized taller coins with the king and an angel taking him to the heaven, or other designs with skeletons... and they were giving them to the poor during the funeral! that was so the lord and God will hear a good word and that he was a good ruler so he can go to Heaven....!

 

Except these talers, there were some medalions made for the black death! They had skepetons and they were used as a protection from the plage! :D

 

It is a lovely coin!!! I hope one will find its way here too.... if planes start flying again! :D

Very cool - and very deserving.

A very good quote as well - a more subtle one to go with your more modern...

"Life goes Fast, Have a Blast"

 

Excellent advice!!

Ok, I have not been into the forums in forever. Today I come home to a gold mailer too and this awesome looking coin. This only the 2nd mystery coin I have ever gotten and I absolutely love it. I am honored to have gotten it, even though I dont feel that I deserve it. It will definitely go with my other mystery coin. Only one thing though that I wish, I wish it were number 6 instead of 8....lol

Well I have been feeling a bit down lately and especially after posting my charity auction last night. This afternoon I find a gold bubbler in my mail box. What's this? I haven't ordered anything. I tore it open and found this awesome coin!! :rolleyes: What a great way to lift my spirits. :anibad: I have no idea how the mystery coiners know when somebody could use a lift but you did it again!!

 

I have no clue who sent this and there isn't any postmark on it to even keep me guessing. Whoever you are thank you from the bottom of my heart! I feel very honored to have been chosen to receive one. Many hugs to you my friend and if we shall ever meet tell me I owe you a hug and you shall receive! (That is if you want one of my hugs LOL :rolleyes: )
