Description

Tempus fugit is a Latin phrase, usually translated into English as “time flies”. The expression comes from line 284 of book 3 of Virgil’s Georgics, where it appears as fugit inreparabile tempus: “it escapes, irretrievable time”. The phrase is used in both its Latin and English forms as a proverb that “time’s a-wasting”.

  • Contains 1 oz. Troy .999 Fine Silver
  • Obverse: A winged skull covered in the was from the candle of time, set upon a backdrop of a clock with roman numerals, with an hourglass overlayed.  Decorative scroll-work circles the skull with the words “TEMPUS FUGIT” across the lower circumference.
  • Reverse: Intaglio Mint logo set on radial burst surrounded by stippled border reading “ONE TROY OUNCE” above and “.999 FINE SILVER” below on textured background, flanked by mintage year in roman numerals “MMXXII”.
