Fine silver and Fine art! Kitco is honored to offer the sixth and final 1 oz silver proof round in the stunning collection inspired by the well known early 20th century artist Alphonse Mucha. Even if you don’t recognize the Mucha name, you will likely find this artist’s distinctive work is familiar. Alphonse Mucha’s Art Nouveau has been admired for more than 100 years, and has been reproduced on murals, posters, advertisements, album covers and now, silver rounds.
The “Laurel” design is the final and sixth in the series of 1 oz .999 fine silver rounds produced for the Anonymous Mint by the Osborne Mint in Cincinnati, Ohio. The original artwork by Mucha was completed in 1901, as part of the design of an upscale Parisian jewelry store, Boutique Fouquet. The design features the serene face a beautiful "Mucha Woman" looking down, her hair entwined with laurel leaves and flowers, and her face surrounded by a mosaic halo.
Each individual silver round “Laurel’ is 1 oz of pure .999 bullion silver. A unique serial number is minted in the rim of the round, and this number matches the accompanying Certificate of Authenticity. A mirrored proof finish enhances the texture and color. On the obverse side, Mucha’s 1901 Laurel image is represented, while on the reverse side of this and all the 1 oz silver rounds in the Mucha collection, a bust of the artist appears, with the years of the artist’s life, the 1 oz weight of the fine silver, plus the metal content and purity of the fine silver bullion.
