The Euro Special Note on the occasion of the great merit of Nikola Tesla.
Nikola Tesla was a Serbian-Croatian inventor, electrical engineer and physicist. He is considered one of the greatest engineers and inventors of all time. Nikola Tesla is best known to the general public as the inventor of the alternating current generator, the alternating current electric motor and other important components of today’s electrical grid. Tesla’s credit was that he developed the alternating current principle much further and greatly improved or designed almost all the necessary devices for an alternating current-based reliable power grid.
The electricity grid currently plays a major role in sustainability. In honor of this, a note was made about Nikola Tesla. He is regarded as one of the greatest European inventors: “I am as proud of my Serbian origin as of my Croatian homeland”, the inventor wrote in 1936.
