Latin Quotes

The silver medal of the Czech Mint "Omnia vincit amor" is an original gift, through which you can express various forms of love - from platonic affection to romantic longing. We will engrave the text directly on the medal according to your wishes.

The era of ancient Rome is often seen today as a decadent time full of reckless and unbridled sexual adventure. But as the remnants of their cultural wealth prove, the ancient Romans undoubtedly knew deep, true and open-hearted love. For example, the most famous Roman poet Publius Vergilius Maro, who lived and worked in the 1st century BC, wrote in his Songs of the Shepherds that "Omnia vincit amor" - "Love conquers all". These words are spoken on his deathbed by a man named Gallus, who is so mad with unhappy love that even the gods themselves cannot help him. But there is another part of the quotation that is forgotten. In its full form it reads "Amor vincit omnia, et nos cedamus amori" - "Love conquers all, so let us submit to it".

Medal maker MgA. Petra Čánská dedicated the obverse side of the medal to the heart - a universal symbol of love that is understandable across time and space. It is suppplemented with the contemplative text NAD VŠÍM VÍTĚZÍ LÁSKA (LOVE WINS). The reverse side is then reserved for engraving a text - a personal dedication, a year, a quote, ... Imagination has no limits.

The medal is placed in a gift box with an attachment that explains in words and pictures the origin of the Latin quote.
