Mucha was critical to the growth of art, and the development of the Art Nouveau movement. His posters and panels included intricate images of beautiful women, with no text included in any of the designs. His works were easily reproduced on posters and other advertisements, not only making them easier for the public to own but also for businesses to reproduce for various ad campaigns.
On the obverse of the 5 oz Proof Silver Laurel Round you’ll find the left-profile portrait of Laurel. Laurel is one of two designs, together with Ivy, that were initially commissioned in 1901 with Mucha by a popular dancer of the day known as Lygie. Laurel first appeared in the interior of the Boutique Fourquet, and was later used on a calendar for a signage company by the name of Dewez.
The obverse of all Silver Mucha Collection Rounds include a front-facing portrait of Mucha. Taken from an actual photograph of the Czech artist, his picture is surrounded by engravings of his name, years of birth and death, and the round’s weight, purity, and metal content.
Anonymous Mint worked with coin creator Julie Lindquist on the designs used in the Mucha Collection, with Italian Master Sculptor Luigi Badia engraving those designs onto dies for striking. The Mucha Foundation, which catalogs and preserves Mucha’s works, authorized this release of six designs.
