Alphonse Mucha is considered by many to be the father of the Art Nouveau movement that changed the art world between 1890 and 1920, hitting its height during the last decade of the 19th century and first decade of the 20th century. Among his many popular design series was The Arts, which was released in 1898. Right now, the 1 oz Antique Mucha Collection Dance Silver Round is available to purchase online from JM Bullion.

Each 1 oz Antique Mucha Collection Dance Silver Round in this listing has a stunning antique patina. This proprietary application by Anonymous Mint adds depth to the character of the designs and warmth to the overall imagery. The rounds in this collection have serial numbers engraved with edge lettering, and matching Certificate of Authenticity is included with purchase.
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 obverse of the 1 oz Antique Mucha Collection Dance Silver 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 silver rounds.
All 1 oz Antique Mucha Collection Dance Silver Rounds feature the sinuous figure and long, swaying hair of Dance on the reverse. 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 has developed the six-round Mucha Collection Silver Rounds with approval of The Mucha Foundation. Coin creator Julie Lindquist helped flush out the concepts for the program, while Italian Master Sculptor Luigi Badia engraved the striking dies for each of the six designs in the series.
