Artifact: Erasmus of Rotterdam Medal Size: 34.15 x 33.35 mm Weight: 13.7 g Date: 1531 Significance: This silver medal was minted in Germany in 1531 in honor of the Dutch Renaissance humanist, Erasmus of Rotterdam (1466-1536). The obverse side (left) has a bust of Erasmus while the reverse side (below) has a man’s head on a cubical boundary stone atop grassy ground, which was Erasmus’s memento mori device.* The Latin inscriptions on the medal and their meanings are: IMAGO AD VIVA EFFIGIE EXPRESSA meaning “His image modeled to the living features” CONCEDO NVLLI TERMINUS meaning “I, Terminus [Death], yield to none” and MORS VLTIMA LINEA RERVM meaning “Death is the final goal of all.” This medal, along with some 700 other coins and medals from CHI’s Reformation Era and Anniversary Collection, has now been photographed. CHI hopes to have a catalog of this extensive collection published for the 500th anniversary of the Reformation (2017). Click here to view larger images of the medal.
