This coin ring features artwork from the artist Alphonse Mucha, father of the Art Nouveau "New Art" period from 1890-1910. Alphonse Mucha completed this advertisement poster for the Joseph Bardou Company, manufacturers of cigarette papers in 1896 and is by far his most well known poster. The poster featured on this coin established the iconic image of the "Mucha woman" with swirls of over exaggerated and abundant hair. Mucha also introduced a Byzantine style with the border decoration inspired by the mosaic work of the era.
This coin ring starts off with 1 Troy ounce of fine .999 silver bullion and makes for a truly stunning and unique coin ring.
