Alphonse Mucha is considered by many to be the father of the Art Nouveau movement that changed the art world between 1890 and 1920, hitting its height during the last decade of the 19th century and first decade of the 20th century. Among his many popular design series was The Arts, which was released in 1898. Right now, the 1 oz Proof Silver Mucha Collection Dance Round is available to purchase online at Silver.com.

Dance was one of four figures from The Arts Series, and was the final after the creation of Painting, Poetry, and Music. Each of the female figures in The Arts was beautiful and seductive.
Anonymous Mint has developed the six-round Mucha Collection Silver Rounds with approval of The Mucha Foundation. Coin creator Julie Lindquist helped flush out the concepts for the program, while Italian Master Sculptor Luigi Badia engraved the striking dies for each of the six designs in the series.
On the reverse of the 1 oz Proof Silver Mucha Collection Dance Round includes the image of Mucha taken from an actual full-size photograph of the Czech artist. For the round series, a close-up shot of his head was chosen, and is surrounded by engravings of his name, birth year, death year, weight, metal content, and purity of the round.
All 1 oz Proof Silver Mucha Collection Dance Rounds feature the sinuous figure and long, swaying hair of Dance on the obverse. She is depicted looking back over her shoulder at you, her figure tight as she stands on her tiptoes while her auburn hair flows in the breeze. Mucha’s depiction of Dance was originally completed in pencil and watercolor, and later released on a wider scale as a color lithograph.
