STOIC FOUR CARDINAL VIRTUES MEDALLION


The Cardinal Virtues are considered to be the four pillars of Stoicism and according to the Stoics, their understanding and embodiment is essential to living a meaningful and happy life. Acting virtuously is always the goal, and everything else that is important naturally falls into place.

The first Stoic, Zeno, was responsible for the creation of the virtues and he was inspired by the work of Plato, Aristotle and Socrates. They were then passed down, taught to and embodied by the likes of Seneca, Marcus Aurelius and Epictetus. Without doubt, they continue to be just as important and relevant as ever in the 21st century.

The Cardinal Virtues of Stoicism are Wisdom, Courage, Justice and Temperance. No virtue is more important than the other, and many Stoics believed that to represent one is to represent them all as they are all so closely interlinked and interdependent. A very brief description of each would be:

WISDOM - to prioritise understanding, not just learning. True wisdom only arises from action and experience.

COURAGE - to act in the face of fear, not necessarily the absence of it. Courage is required in every area of life, including doing what you know to be right.

JUSTICE - to act for the benefit of others. To work for the benefit of other human beings and to condemn anything that inflicts injury or harms another.

TEMPERANCE - to exert and practise self-control, balance and moderation. Wanting what you have, rather than what you don’t have.


THIS SPECIFIC MEDALLION - FRONT & BACK


Front of the coin: A design that depicts all four of the Cardinal Virtues, with each symbol and letter representing a specific virtue. The owl represents Wisdom, the lion represents Courage, the scales represent Justice and the lotus flower represents Temperance.

Back of the coin: A simple but bold list of the Four Cardinal Virtues of Stoicism: Wisdom, Courage, Justice and Temperance. The four balanced stones above the virtues represents each virtue and how we must balance and turn to them throughout our daily lives - good times and bad.

Whether you keep this medallion on your desk, in your pocket or by your bed, it is designed to be a constant reminder of the 4 Stoic Virtues and the importance of representing them whenever you can.
