Featured on the obverse is the EXECUTIONER - taking heads and piling skulls. In keeping with the theme of anonymity, the hooded, medieval executioner has been chosen to represent Anonymous Mint. Historically, the profession of executioner would run in the family, sons following in their father's path. Executioners would travel within certain regions to perform their task which also included punishing by torture. They were often regarded as "damned" people, and for that reason, their graveyards were kept separate from the public graveyards. The executioner's tombstone would usually be rough, unpolished, uncarved with no inscription. Today, we still have our modern executioners, prison and judicial officials. Because executions are no longer available for public display/viewing, they easily conceal their anonymity.

MEMENTO MORI - Remember Death. A reminder to all mortals that time is fleeting and every minute counts. Death respects no one and comes on quickly. The Last Laugh is depicted with laughing dead man, skulls, hourglasses and reaping blades. This type of funeral art was popular in medieval times through the Victorian era and serves to remind one of their own mortality. Death's last laugh at debt.
Coin Reverse - The Anonymous Mint graciously crowns the OWL as its reverse logo. Owl represents wisdom, intelligence, mystery, transition, secrets and protection. The announcer of death. In ancient symbolism, the owl represented guardianship of the underworld and protection of the dead. Owl has been known as ruler of the night, seer of souls, and keeper of spirits that had passed from one plane to another. During medieval times, it was fabled that owls were actually priestesses or wizards in disguise.
