Alphonse Maria Mucha was born in Moravia in the Austrian Empire, now Czech Republic, in July 1860. He would go on to become a famed Czech art nouveau painter and decorative artist who is considered by many to be the father of the art nouveau movement. He was an active artist, creating new designs and paintings up until his death in 1939.
Your 5 oz Antique Silver Mucha Collection Dance Round features a unique edge lettering bearing the individual serial number of the round. This number is reflected on the Certificate of Authenticity included in the purchase of your round. Further, these rounds have a brilliant antiquing added, which brings warmth and depth to the overall design.
On the reverse of all 5 oz Antique Silver Mucha Collection Dance Rounds is 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.
The obverse side of all 5 oz Antique Silver Mucha Collection Dance Rounds include the stunning figure of Dance. 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.
Anonymous Mint developed this silver round series with authorization from The Mucha Foundation. The concept for each release was created by coin designer Julie Lindquist and engravings were completed by Italian master sculptor Luigi Badia.
