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. Later he would produce various ad posters, paintings, and even jewelry and wallpaper.
He started the pursuit of his career as a painter during his youth as he followed his passion to Munich, where he completed art studies courses. In the late 1800s, as his career was taking off, Mucha moved to Paris. There he continued his studies and found immense success producing magazine and ad illustrations. Now some of his most-famous works are available as silver rounds in the Mucha Collection from Anonymous Mint.
On the obverse of all 1 oz Proof Silver Mucha Collection Job Rounds you’ll find his iconic Job image. Job was the image of the so-called “Mucha Woman,” whose swirls of abundant hair were intertwined with the smoke from the cigarette in her right hand. Job is now a registered trademark for the Joseph Bardou Company that produces cigarette paper.
The reverse of all Mucha Collection Silver Rounds will feature a portrait of Mucha himself. Taken from a larger photograph of the artist seated in a chair, you’ll see only his face in the portrait along with engravings identifying the series, his birth/death years, and the purity, metal content, and weight of the round.
For proof releases in the Mucha Collection, you’ll find a beautiful mirrored proof finish, with brilliantly clear background fields. There is edge lettering of the serial number on each of the individual silver rounds, and the Certificate of Authenticity included in your purchase reflects that same number.
