Luctor et Emergo Medallion
Luctor et Emergo, or, "I struggle and overcome".
Kids don't need a helicopter parent. They don't need a parent bulldozing over ever obstacle either. Let your child struggle, but show them support. They will grow into a capable individual.
Each coin is handcrafted in the United States by a custom mint operating in Minnesota since 1882—the same mint where the iconic AA anniversary medallions were created in 1973 by Bill Westman, an employee. Westman wanted to create something to leave with people he interacted with in recovery groups and to mark their achievements in sobriety, to remind them of the messages of AA and help keep them on their road to recovery. Westman’s advice was “Carry this in your pocket or purse and when temptation is great, reach into your pocket and feel the medallion and remember your struggle to get this far.”
