For the first time in history, the Serbian Mint has created a series of legal tender bullion 1 oz. silver coins! This electrifying new program honors the intricate inventions of Nikola Tesla. Now available is the series' inaugural release which pays tribute to alternating current (AC) via Tesla's induction motor - an invention that sparked massive change in industrial mechanics.
Born at the stroke of midnight in a dramatic lightning storm in 1856, Nikola Tesla's Mother prophetically proclaimed that he will be a "child of light!"
Dedicated to the study of science and mathematics, Tesla spoke eight languages fluently and was able to visualize his completed inventions in three dimensions.
With over 300 patents, Tesla is best remembered for inventing the first induction motor with a rotating magnetic field. This invention made unit drives for machines and made AC power transmission an economic necessity.
The remarkable thing about Tesla is that he created the induction motor in a way that was essentially perfect. The design has not had to be changed in the last 120 years.
In 2019, the Serbian Mint released the second coin in the series which honors Nikola Tesla's invention of the remote control! Made from .999 fine silver, only 50,000 of these will be minted.
The obverse shares the same design as the 2018 release, featuring the iconic portrait of Tesla. Inscriptions on this side include "Electrical Visionary" and "Powering the Feature."
The reverse features the boat that was used to demonstrate his remote control. The patent number, "120th Anniversary Remote Control," "Wireless Transmission," are inscribed on this face along with the weight, purity, and date.
