Alphonse Maria Mucha is widely regarded as the father of the art nouveau movement. His unique style of creating female forms for advertising and promotional posters includes beautiful women in seductive poses. Originally known as the “Mucha Style,” by 1895 those images were considered the founding designs of art nouveau.

Alphonse Maria Mucha was born in Moravia in the Austrian Empire, now the Czech Republic, in July 1860. His professional career began at the age of 17 when he lived and studied in Munich. By 1895, he had moved to Paris and was a rising star in the world of art. He remained an active artist, creating new designs and paintings up until his death in 1939.
All 5 oz Silver Mucha Collection Job Rounds listed here today with Silver.com has a beautiful antique finish. The application of antiquing adds warmth and age to the appearance of the silver round, while creating added depth to the overall design. Each round has edge lettering with its individual serial number, which is reflected on the numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
The obverse of the 5 oz Antique Silver Mucha Collection Job Round includes the iconic image of the woman known as Job. Known also as the “Mucha Woman,” Job was one of his many works featuring beautiful women with long, flowing hair. Job first appeared on an advertising poster in 1896.
On the reverse of all Silver Mucha Collection Rounds is a portrait of Mucha. Taken from one in which he’s seated in a chair, the portrait is fixed on his face and includes engravings of his name, birth and death years, and the round’s weight, purity, and metal content. Mucha was also involved with the fledgling government of Czechoslovakia following World War I, designing postage stamps and banknotes for the new nation.
Anonymous Mint is a small operation that creates truly unique, one-of-a-kind silver and copper products. Julie Lindquist worked with Anonymous to create the dies and refine the designs for use on a silver round program.
