Alphonse Mucha was born as Alfons Maria Mucha on July 24, 1860 in the Austrian Empire, which is now modern-day Czech Republic. His works began to attract attention in 1895 as he produced posters for plays that launched his career.
Beyond depictions of beautiful women, Mucha was immensely active in contributing to the world of art through various other forms. Starting in 1895 he completed a variety of ad posters, paintings, and book illustrations that catapulted his career, but he was also involved in the design of postage stamps, banknotes, and even government documents for the newly independent Czechoslovakia following World War I, up until his death in 1939.
The Mucha Collection includes four silver rounds per design release. Each of Mucha’s famous designs in this six-round collection includes a 1 oz and 5 oz option, with finishes available in antique and proof. The mirrored-proof finish has beautiful background fields that are clear and reflective. The rounds all have edge lettering that depicts their individual serial number, and is reflected on the included Certificate of Authenticity.
On the obverse of the 5 oz Proof Silver Mucha Collection Job Round you’ll find the image of JOB. Created in 1896 by Mucha, Job was known as the “Mucha Woman” and became the brand symbol for a company that manufactures cigarette paper.
The reverse of the Silver Mucha Collection Rounds all feature the same image. A portrait of Alphonse Mucha is shown on this side of the round, along with engravings of his name above, the purity, metal content, and weight of the round to the left, and the year of birth and death for Mucha below his image.
