LPM is the proud exclusive Asian distributor of the new Nikola Tesla coin series. This exciting new program is issued by the National Bank of Serbia in honour of their world famous native. 
Compared to other more prolific sovereign mints, The National Bank of Serbia is a lesser known producer of precious metals coins in the Asian markets, however, this interesting and innovative Tesla release is a great introduction to the mint's creative capabilities 
The collection will feature a permanent portrait of Tesla on the obverse with an evolving reverse showcasing his inventions, patents and visionary concepts.

The first issue will feature one of Tesla's most important invention, the alternating current electric motor. While the second planned issue in November will commemorate his invention of the remote control. The first issue "Alternating Current" will carry a limited mintage of 50,000 BU coins and 3327 1oz silver proof coins.  

Nikola Tesla is viewed by many scientists and historians as one of the most notable inventors and visionaries of all time.  He is credited exclusively or in part with technologies that changed the world, including the electric lighting grid, electric motors, remote control, hydro-electric power, turbine engines, magnetic propulsion, electro-magnetic energy generation, x-rays, lasers, particle beams, solar power adaption, weather manipulation, robotics, wireless transmission, radio, television, cell phones, and the internet.  Many of these will be the subject of future coins.
In 1976, the Institute of Electrical & Electronic Engineers established their annual award of the Tesla medal.
In 2003, Nikola Tesla’s concepts were acknowledged when a new electric automobile company named itself in his honour.
Tesla has been the subject of numerous documentaries in recent years.  In 2018, the History Channel ran a five-part investigation documentary titled “The Tesla Files” which opened new considerations and suggested new revelations as to his life, importance, and associations in America.   Tesla’s accomplishments, those both noted and those previously suppressed, are still being rediscovered and applied to evolving technologies.

Product Highlights:
  • Mintage of 50,000 worldwide.
  • The coins are struck in .999 fine silver.
  • Each sovereign coin is backed by the Serbian government.
  • 100 Dinara denomination 
  • 1st coin in an exciting new series which will feature three new designs each year.
  • Obverse: Features an iconic image of Nikola Tesla with his hand resting against his face. Below the image is the inscription “Electrical Visionary” and “Powering The Future”. Near the outer rim of the coin is Nikola Tesla’s name in English and in Serbian Cyrillic.
  • Reverse: Features the Republic of Serbia coat of arms centred above along with a highly detailed image of one of Nikola Tesla’s greatest inventions the "Induction Motor". Above the image reads Alternating Current (AC) and below the image reads “Lighting The World”. Additionally, each coin displays the weight, purity and Silver content along with the date and denomination.
Born and raised in the Austrian Empire, Tesla received an advanced education in engineering and physics in the 1870s and gained practical experience in the early 1880s working in telephony and at Continental Edison in the new electric power industry. He emigrated to the United States in 1884, where he would become a naturalized citizen. He worked for a short time at the Edison Machine Works in New York City before he struck out on his own. With the help of partners to finance and market his ideas, Tesla set up laboratories and companies in New York to develop a range of electrical and mechanical devices. His alternating current (AC) induction motor and related polyphase AC patents, licensed by Westinghouse Electric in 1888, earned him a considerable amount of money and became the cornerstone of the polyphase system which that company would eventually market.

Attempting to develop inventions he could patent and market, Tesla conducted a range of experiments with mechanical oscillators/generators, electrical discharge tubes, and early X-ray imaging. He also built a wireless-controlled boat, one of the first ever exhibited. Tesla became well known as an inventor and would demonstrate his achievements to celebrities and wealthy patrons at his lab, and was noted for his showmanship at public lectures.

Throughout the 1890s, Tesla pursued his ideas for wireless lighting and worldwide wireless electric power distribution in his high-voltage, high-frequency power experiments in New York and Colorado Springs. In 1893, he made pronouncements on the possibility of wireless communication with his devices. Tesla tried to put these ideas to practical use in his unfinished Wardenclyffe Tower project, an intercontinental wireless communication and power transmitter but ran out of funding before he could complete it.

On 7 January 1943, at the age of 86, Tesla died alone in Room 3327 of the New Yorker Hotel. His body was later found by maid Alice Monaghan after she had entered Tesla's room, ignoring the "do not disturb" sign that Tesla had placed on his door two days earlier. Assistant medical examiner H.W. Wembley examined the body and ruled that the cause of death had been coronary thrombosis
