Alphonse Mucha was born as Alfons Maria Mucha on July 24, 1860 in the Austrian Empire, which is now modern-day Czech Republic. His works began to attract attention in 1895 as he produced posters for plays that launched his career. Later he would produce various ad posters, paintings, and even jewelry and wallpaper.
The all-new Mucha Collection from Anonymous Mint was developed by Julie Lindquist, engraved by Italian master sculptor Luigi Badia, and reviving the works of Alphonse Mucha with the permission of the Mucha Foundation. Mucha was alive from 1860 to 1939, and active as an artist from 1895 until his death.
Muchas Champagne design was created in 1896 as his career was on an upward trajectory following the release of his Job design. Much like Job, Champagne was a beautiful woman with flowing hair, and was commissioned by F. Champenois and used in various adverts throughout the course of Muchas life. As her name suggests, many of the original choices saw her form used for champagne advertisements.
On the obverse of all 5 oz Antique Mucha Collection Champagne Silver Rounds youll find the beautiful image of Champagne. Rather than the full-length figure often depicted in other works, a close-up visual of the Mucha Woman was chosen for this design. All of these antique designs have a patented treatment added to the rounds which bring depth to the design and warmth to the coins old appearance.
The reverse of each of the Mucha Collection Silver Rounds includes a portrait of the artist himself. Mucha was born in present-day Czech Republic, then the Austrian Empire, in 1860 and would launch his artistic career in 1895 with an ad sketch for a local playhouse. He was active in the arts until his death in 1939.
Anonymous Mint is a private minting facility in the United States that specializes in the release of limited-issue silver rounds. The Mucha Collection will feature a total of six designs in total, with four rounds released for each design.
