NIKOLA TESLA-HUMAN GENIUS OR ALIEN?

This new blog is on, probably, my greatest hero outside of my immediate family, Nikola Tesla. The coin is one ounce .999 fine silver minted in the Serbian Mint for 2018. It has a 39.0 mm diameter. It has a value of 100 Serbian dinara. The total mintage is only 50,000.

   Featured on the obverse is a portrait of the inventor at the approximate age of 40.His name is above him. It is inscribed in both English and Serbian Cyrillic. Under his portrait is the legend "ELECTRICAL VISIONARY", then a lightning bolt. Below that is inscribed "POWERING THE FUTURE".  

   Centered in the middle is a picture of Tesla's induction motor, with the Serbian Coat of Arms top center. Below that is inscribed "ALTERNATING CURRENT" above and "LIGHTING THE WORLD" and "2018" below. Also inscribed are the words "REPUBLIKKA SRBIJA", 1 OZ., .999 SILVER" and "DINARA 100".

   The man himself has a varied and remarkable history. From the moment of his birth in 1856 during a lightning storm, to his questionable death on January 7, 1943 he led a mysterious life and career. He is most notable for inventing the A.C. motor. He was caught up in a war between Edison and Westinghouse. He was taken advantage of by both men and died penniless instead of the rich man he should have been. He had hundreds of patents and scientific awards to his credit.

   It has been theorized that he received help from aliens, as he was such a prolific genius. On the day of his death many cases of his notes were taken by the FBI. To this day not all of them are accounted for. The reader should research him themselves as I will go off on a rant.  He also was working on limitless, wireless, free electricity and a so called death ray, at the time of his death. Remnants of these can be found in Colorado Springs and New York.

   I better stop now. Please look at the photos below and comment on this blog. Thanks for your time.

A truly great man. How he died penniless was the first crime. The second was not given the credit he deserved for all his work . But the biggest is the government standing behind the rights to seeing what they confiscated. You see the government was very sharp when the made the Freedom of Information Act. There's a line that states if something can be interpreted as a danger to American Sequirety then it can't be released. Welcome to the free wold. Thanks Mike

Thanks Revenant. I fixed it,I hope. First journal entry. Can you tell?

Nothing wrong with starting out or taking time to figure out things. I've gone back and added pictures to some of mine in the past year or so as I've gotten adjusted to the newer format. I think the thing I had the most trouble with was figuring out the difference between the normal photo attachments / uploads and the "feature" photo which pops up in the banner for the post. That took me a while.

What an awesome topic!  I am a huge fan of Tesla!  The man was born too far ahead of his time.  Very few people understood him, and many mistreated him.  

I know this is a coin journal but I just can't resist adding the words of another "Tesla" I love. Tesla the rock band.  And they speak to me in their own way.

Here are the words to their famous song "Edison's Medicine"......

You're guilty of crime in the first degree,
Second and third as well.
My jury finds you'll be serving your time
When you go straight to hell.

'Cause he was Lord of the Lightning,
Though "socially frightening",
But never out to sell.

Their nickels and pence
Meant more than did sense,
And not the sensible thing.

Nor did the man outta time, man outta time.
Thought you was crazy, you was one of a kind.
Man outta time, man outta time.
All along, world was wrong, you was right.

All that he saw, all he conceived,
They just could not believe.
Steinmetz and Twain were friends that remained,
Along with number three.
He was electromagnetic, completely kinetic,
"New Wizard of the West."
But they swindled and whined that he wasn't our kind,
And said Edison knew best.

He was the man outta time, man outta time.
Thought you was crazy, you was one of a kind.
Man outta time, man outta time.
Said you was outta your mind!

You took a shot and it did you in.
Edison's medicine.
You played your cards, but you couldn't win.
Edison's medicine.

I spent twelve years of hard time,
More like the best years of my life.
Never heard or read a single word
About "the man" and his "wicked mind."
They'll sell you on Marconi.
Familiar, but a phony.
Story goes they sold their souls
And swore that you'd never know.

About the man outta time, man outta time.
Thought you was crazy, you was one of a kind.
Man outta time, man outta time.
Swore you was outta your mind!

You took a shot and it did you in.
Edison's medicine.
You played your cards, but you couldn't win.
Edison's medicine.

You took a shot and it did you in.
Edison's medicine.
You played your cards, but you couldn't win.
Edison's medicine.

 

I know I will probably get a lot of blow back from this, but when people talk about Edison and his work it makes me physically sick!
