Per Aspera Ad Astra Coin - Keep Your Eyes on the Stars

Per Aspera Ad Astra (or, less commonly, Ad Astra Per Aspera) is a popular Latin phrase meaning "through hardships to the stars". The phrase is one of the many Latin sayings that use the expression ad astra, meaning "to the stars". It’s all about the life struggle and the fact that you should never stop doing good things.

There are many versions of this phrase. Virgil wrote "Sic Itur Ad Astra" (thus one journeys to the stars) and Seneca wrote "Non Est Ad Astra Mollis e Terris Via" (there is no easy road from the earth (lit. 'out of the lands') to the stars). Another famous version is "Per Ardua Ad Astra" (through struggle to the stars). This phrase and its versions have been the motto of countless universities, cities, air forces throughout the world.
