Mucha made a living creating a whole-new concept in the art world. As a leader of the Art Nouveau movement, his posters were among his most beautiful and well-received works. His panels combined the figures of women and beautiful color arrays, with a complete lack of text and affordable prices.
Many of Muchas works were available to the public on a scale that art had previously never seen. The printer F. Champenois took many of Muchas most popular works and commercialized them, giving his work wider recognition because many were recycled for use by various clients in advertising campaigns.
The 1 oz Antique Mucha Collection Ivy Silver Round available to you here today has a wonderful antique patina that adds warmth and depth to the rounds design features, as well as its overall appearance. These rounds have edge lettering with individual serial numbers that match those on the included Certificate of Authenticity.
On the reverse of all 1 oz Antique Mucha Collection Ivy Silver Rounds is the image of a womans portrait in right-profile relief. Known as Ivy, much designed this in 1901 on an artistic poster for the dancer Lygie. In fact, it is said that her image inspired the look of Ivy in the print.
The obverse of all Mucha Collection Silver Rounds includes a headshot portrait of Mucha taken from a real-life photograph of the Czech artist during the height of his works in the Art Nouveau period, from 1890 to 1910. Engravings include his name, year of birth and death, and the rounds weight, purity, and metal content.
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.
