The Mucha Collection’s fifth coin in the series is Ivy which was completed in 1901. The piece was produced for the dancer, Lygie, and may have been inspired by her. The design displays the profiled bust of a woman. Her hair is adorned and intertwined with ivy, while a single rosebud is placed on her bosom. The intricate design element that backgrounds the balance of the piece contains an arrow and flower motif.
World renowned artist/painter Alphonse Mucha was born in the Czech Republic in 1860. At the early age of 17, Mucha resolves to become a professional painter and set out to begin his art studies in Munich. Mucha moved to Paris in the late 1800s, continuing his studies and becoming very successful producing magazine and advertising illustrations. It was about 1895 that Mucha produced posters for plays catapulting his success. He produced a flurry of posters, advertisements, paintings and book illustrations. Mucha also designed wallpaper, jewelry, and even theatre sets.
The "Mucha Style" became known as Art Nouveau which is French for new art. The Art Nouveau period was most famous from 1890 - 1910.
Mucha moved to Prague continuing with his brilliant art decorating landmarks around the city with murals. When Czechoslovakia gained its independence, Mucha designed new postage stamps, banknotes, and government documents. He continued his art through to 1939 when he passed.
Alphonse Mucha was best known for his art of beautiful women which will be portrayed in this coin series.

THESE ARE Colorized PROOFS WITH A MIRROR FINISHSilver Tips to keep you relatively safe:1. Silver should weigh 31.1 to 31.8 grams - any heavier it probably is fake, any lighter it probably is fake. The mint will almost never have it lighter then 31.1 as they don't want to cheat you out of silver, they also will most likely not make it heavier then 31.8 so as to not "give away" free silver. (You can purchase a cheap digital scale here on , you just need a small one weighing grams to the 100th ie 31.18)2. Get a strong magnet, small and circular in size (can be found at any electronics store or even here on ). Hold your silver piece at 90 degree angle with magnet at the top, let the magnet slide down the surface, if it falls off or slides rapidly, it's probably fake. If it sticks, it's probably fake, it should just glide down the piece almost purposely (sort of slow and controlled, but not too slow). Practice a bit - you will get the hang of it.3. Hold a piece of known silver on the tip of your finger, balancing it, take another piece and give it a little tap, you should hear a nice bell ringing tone. If it clinks it probably isn't real.Even if you don't purchase from me, feel free to contact me with any questions you have regarding silver, I respond quickly and am always glad to help!These will keep you relatively safe! bullion - .9999 - pure - silver- collectible - limited - ssg - exclusive - democrat - republican - dnc - rnc - bullet - shield - rare - stacking - stacker - graduation - trivium - freedom girl - standing - southern - confederate - anarchy - anarchist - silver coins - 2015 silver eagle - rare coins - ruthenium - nude silver - pirate .999 silver coin - hammer struck .999 silver coin - ar 15 - blackout coins - 1 oz silver - silver 1 oz ivy fairy - 2016 canadian silver dollar - 90 percent silver coins - silver shield sic semper - silver shield coins - silver pirate coins 8 - gwen godiva
