Mucha was renowned for creating advertising posters and play banners featuring what became known as “Mucha Women.” Though their specific figures and facial features often differed, these beautiful women often appeared in intricate designs with long, flowing hair and were frequently encircled by ornate design accents.
Other than his advertisements with beautiful women, Mucha was immensely active in contributing through various other art forms. Starting in 1895 he completed a variety of ad posters, paintings, and book illustrations that catapulted his career, but he was also involved in the design of postage stamps, banknotes, and even government documents for the newly independent Czechoslovakia following World War I.
Your 5 oz Proof Colorized Silver Mucha Collection Champagne Round features a beautiful proof striking with a mirrored finish to the background. The addition of colorized finishes to the round brings his original Champagne design to life. All rounds in the collection have edge lettering with individual serial numbers, which are reflected on the Certificate of Authenticity included in the purchase of every round.
The reverse of each of the Mucha Collection Silver Rounds includes a portrait of the artist himself. Mucha was born in present-day Czech Republic, then the Austrian Empire, in 1860 and would launch his artistic career in 1895 with an ad sketch for a local playhouse. He was active in the arts until his death in 1939.
On the obverse of all 5 oz Proof Silver Colorized Mucha Collection Champagne Rounds you’ll find the beautiful image of Champagne. Her figure was used by a prominent champagne company that Mucha worked for designing catalogs, posters, and other advertisements. She is depicted as a sensual blonde with a long, pink dresses that exposes her shoulders. Grape vines frame her figure in the background as she clutches a bowl of grapes in her left hand.
