In the third design release of the Mucha Collection from Anonymous Mint, the image of Rose from The Flower Series makes its appearance on the silver round collection.

The Flower Series was a collection of four posters created by Mucha between 1895 and 1900. These appeared originally in Les Maitres de l’Affiche, a monthly publication from Jules Cheret that featured some of the best posters of the day as selected by Cheret. Rose appeared as the first of these released, arriving as the first of two released in 1898.
As with all Mucha designs of the day, Rose was a beautiful woman with suggestive gestures included in the design. Throughout The Flower Series, Mucha used decorative flowers and flowing hair in concert with subtle, yet striking color combinations.
The obverse of the 1 oz Antique Mucha Collection Rose Silver Round includes a popular portrait of the artist himself. Taken from a photo in which he is seated, you’ll see only his face in this portrait with engravings of his name, years of birth and death, and the round’s weight, purity, and metal content.
On the reverse of the 1 oz Antique Mucha Collection Rose Silver Round is the image of Rose. Mucha’s collection of beautiful women from The Flower Series debuted with two watercolors exhibited at his solo exhibition at the Salon des Cent in 1897, which featured Rose and the second panel from the series.
