Mucha’s Rose design was the first of four panels in the so-called Flower Series, which debuted in 1898. Each of the panels in the Flower Series used a naturalistic style and minimal stylization. Two of the four watercolors in this collection debuted in 1897 at Mucha’s solo exhibit at the Salon des Cent, with the entire set not available until 1898.
All 1 oz Proof Colorized Silver Mucha Collection Rose Rounds listed here represent the third release in the Mucha Collection from Anonyous Mint. These rounds have a proof finish, with a deeply mirrored reflection on the background fields and brilliant colorization of the Rose imagery. Rounds in the Mucha Collection have edge lettering of their serial numbers, which correspond with the Certificate of Authenticity you receive with purchase.
The reverse of the 1 oz Proof Colorized 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 Proof Colorized Silver Mucha Collection Rose Round is the image of Rose. The image of Rose was initially completed as a water color made to depict her figure as the personification of the rose flower. This design depicts Rose as a beautiful woman with roses adorning her upswept hair.
Anonymous Mint developed the Mucha Collection, which features a total of six planned designs. Coin creator Julie Lindquist developed the concept with Anonymous Mint, and Italian Master Sculptor Luigi Badia worked on the engravings for each.
