The height of Muchas career occurred during the Art Nouveau movement between 1890 and 1920, but he shot to prominence in particular between 1895 and 1900. His first big art project was the advertisement poster for a playhouse production in 1895, and he quickly gained notoriety following its release.
From 1895 to 1900, he released six different collections of artwork that are considered seminal in his career. Following this period, he continued to create projects ranging from private commissions to government-funded works such as postage stamps and banknotes following the formation of an independent Czech Republic.
All 1 oz Proof Mucha Collection Laurel Silver Round listed here is one of four available weights in this final design release of the Mucha Collection. Other Laurel Silver Rounds includes a 1 oz Antique, 5 oz Antique, and 5 oz Proof. These rounds have a mirrored, clear finish to the background field and edge lettering with the individual serial number of each round.
On the reverse of the 1 oz Proof Laurel Silver Round youll find the left-profile portrait of Laurel. Her eyes are unique in a Mucha design, in that theyre set looking downward. Most of Muchas women figures were looking right at the viewer with a seductive or otherwise sultry gaze.
The obverse of all Mucha Collection Silver Rounds include a front-facing portrait of Mucha. Taken from an actual photograph of the Czech artist, his picture is surrounded by engravings of his name, years of birth and death, and the rounds weight, purity, and metal content.
Anonymous Mint worked with coin creator Julie Lindquist on the designs used in the Mucha Collection, with Italian Master Sculptor Luigi Badia engraving those designs onto dies for striking. The Mucha Foundation, which catalogs and preserves Muchas works, authorized this release of six designs.
