The image of Dance is arguably one of the most beautiful woman, among a collection of attractive women, that Alphonse Mucha developed during the Art Nouveau period of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

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.
Dance was the fourth design in a series from Mucha known as The Arts. Other figures included in this four-part series of images include Painting, Poetry, and Music. As with all “Mucha Women,” Dance exudes beauty in her figure and is considered by many to be one of his most seductive women ever drawn.
The reverse of the 5 oz Proof Colorized Silver Mucha Collection Dance Round includes 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.
On the obverse of the 5 oz Proof Colorized Silver Mucha Collection Dance Rounds feature the sinuous figure and long, swaying hair of Dance on the obverse. 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.
The Anonymous Mint is a private facility in the US specializing in unique silver round collections. Coin designer Julie Lindquist and Italian master sculptor Luigi Badia brought Mucha’s designs to life with this beautiful collection of silver rounds.
