ORIGINS: Created using an armorial motto coronet wax seal, circa 1820 FRANCE.
This seal depicts a crest with 2 rampant lions supporting a shield atop the Latin motto "Sustine et Abstine" which translates to "Hold On and Hold Off" or "Bear and Forbear", to be in control of ones self and destiny. Be patient and endure.
This medallion is a reminder to endure what is difficult or hard to deal with, through patience one achieves all, even the impossible. Words to live by every day.
