Alphonse Mucha made a name for himself in the artistic world first with the development of posters that came to be known as “Mucha Women” in a broader sense. Between 1895 and 1900 he released six different series of posters, each of which featured beautiful women on colorful posters with no text. Each woman was depicted in a manner that included suggestive gestures.
On the obverse of all 5 oz Antique Silver Mucha Collection Ivy Rounds you’ll find the right-profile portrait of Ivy. Much like Mucha’s other works, Ivy takes the form of a beautiful woman with soft features and suggestive appeal or gestures used in the artwork. Beyond his poster artworks, which became widely available to people from all walks of life, Mucha created a postage stamp, banknote, and other designs for the fledgling government of Czechoslovakia following World War I.
The reverse of the 5 oz Antique Silver Ivy Round includes a portrait of the artist himself. Mucha was born in what was then the Austrian Empire in 1860. Today he is viewed as a cultural icon for the Czech Republic, as the modern day nation encompasses the region in which he was born in 1860.
All rounds in this collection are from Anonymous Mint, which has the approval of the Mucha Foundation to reproduce his brilliant works through coin creator Julie Lindquist and Italian Master Sculptor Luigi Badia.
