Alphonse Maria Mucha was born in Moravia in the Austrian Empire, now Czech Republic, in July 1860. He would go on to become a famed Czech art nouveau painter and decorative artist who is considered by many to be the father of the art nouveau movement. He was an active artist, creating new designs and paintings up until his death in 1939.
His depiction of Rose came from the Flower Series, a collection of four posters he created between 1895 and 1900. These appeared originally in Les Maitres de l’Affiche, a monthly publication from Jules Cheret that featured some of the best posters of the day as selected by Cheret. Rose appeared as the first of these released, arriving as the first of two released in 1898.
The reverse of the 1 oz Antique Silver Mucha Collection Rose Round includes a popular portrait of the artist himself. Taken from a photo in which he is seated, you’ll see only his face in this portrait with engravings of his name, years of birth and death, and the round’s weight, purity, and metal content.
On the obverse of the 1 oz Antique Silver Mucha Collection Rose Silver Round is the image of Rose. Her figure is delicately depicted holding a full bloomed rose in each hand, while she stares forward at you with a serene look on her face. The background field is filled out by the natural beauty of flowering rose vines.
The 1 oz Antique Silver Mucha Collection Rose Round ships inside of an air-tight plastic capsule, and includes a Certificate of Authenticity with serial number that matches the edge lettering used on all rounds in the collection.
