Layaway Information

Layaway Policies

We offer a layaway plan on select products so you may pay for your order over a period of 60 days. Products that are eligible for layaway will show "Layaway Available: Yes" on the product page.

Here's how it works:

The total amount of the order excluding shipping, tax, or fees is divided into three (3) equal payments. The first payment is due with the order, the second payment is due 30 days later, and the final payment is due 60 days after the order.

There is a $15 non-refundable fee for layaway orders. This fee is added to the first payment along with the shipping and any tax. The first payment is made when the order is placed.

Example: Your order total is $300 plus $12.75 shipping and handling. If you select the layaway option, your payments would be:

  • $127.75 (1/3 of purchase = $100 + $15 layaway fee + $12.75 shipping)
  • $100.00 (1/3 of purchase = $100)
  • $100.00 (1/3 of purchase = $100)

If your initial payment is made by credit card, we will automatically process the 2nd and 3rd payments at the appropriate time using the same credit card information. You will be reminded via email that a payment will be charged. If you need to change this for any reason, please contact us.

For payments made other than credit card, payment must be received within seven (7) days of the due date or the order is subject to cancellation. You will receive a reminder via email that a payment is due.

If you wish to complete payment early and have your order shipped, you may contact us at any time during the 60 day period. There is no penalty for prepayment.

Additional products may be added to a layaway order without penalty. A new payment schedule will be calculated based on when additional products are added.

If you wish to complete payment early and have your order shipped, you may contact us at any time during the 60 day period. There is no penalty for early payment.

Cancellations of layaway orders are subject to a restocking/processing fee of 10% of the order total (not including tax and shipping costs). This restocking fee is in addition to the $15 non-refundable layaway fee.

Carpe Diem Coin - .999 Fine Silver. New condition.

When I designed my Original Carpe Diem Coin, I wanted a challenge coin that could be carried and given away to friends and family, that would remind the holder that time is fleeting, that death waits at the end for all of us, and that it is important to make the most of every day. I designed the front ("obverse") side of the coin with a skull to represent death, with an escapement gear (found in all mechanical clocks and watches) in the forehead of the skull to represent the passing of time. "Time Flies" was becoming more of a reality every day as I approached 50 years of age. "Death Waits" was my very real, although grim reminder that at the end of all my uncertain days alive, there is only the certainty of death.

The back ("reverse") side of my Original Carpe Diem Coin had a simple message:  "Carpe Diem" which means "Seize the Day," and "Make Your Life Extraordinary." Make the most of every day you have. Work hard, but play hard. Do good for others not as fortunate as you. Be present in the lives of friends and family.

For my Kickstarter Campaign, I re-introduced a newly designed Carpe Diem Coin, and had them professionally minted from custom engraved dies. The obverse has my original skull design re-worked with more detail to represent death, and the escapement gear, hourglasses and an hour / minute track, to represent the passing of time. I decided to use latin for the text on the new coins: "TEMPUS FUGIT" for "Time Flies," and "MEMENTO MORI" for "Remember Death." The reverse shows a "tree of life" with the words "CARPE DIEM" for "Seize the Day." Surrounding the tree of life are the words "FAC VITAM INCREDIBILEM" for "Make an Incredible Life," and "MEMENTO VIVERE" for "Remember to Live." These two sayings are separated by roses, a subtle suggestion to take time to stop and smell the roses.

Carpe Diem Coins are 39mm in diameter, and approximately 2.7mm thick (10 gauge). The Carpe Diem Coins are minted in the USA, by America's oldest mint founded in 1835.

Carpe Diem Coins are available in the following materials and finishes (see product photos):

  • .999 Fine Silver (approx. 1 ounce) - in plastic capsule

Proudly made in the USA.
