Description of obverse and reverse Obverse: Effigy of Elisabeth II surrounded by the 12 zodiak signs, inscriptions “Niue Island”, “Elisabeth II” and “1 dollar” as well as “2011”, and “Ag 925”. Reverse: On the engraved background a colorised image of a women - a Mucha painting, name and symbol of the relevant zodiac sign.
A brief annotation Innovative approach to a very traditional topic – zodiac signs. No “sky” nor “constellation” context is in use. design is based on Alfons Mucha paintings. The series is issued in connection with the 150th anniversary of Alfons Mucha (under a license granted by Mucha Foundation). The technology – a sophisticated pad printing – allowed to preserve a very specific and delicate climate of the Mucha paintings and his style of colorization, also in a smaller format.
