I was wondering the same thing since having been once in Serbia, I saw Tesla’s picture on the paper money 100 dinars. So in which country did he actually belong to before moving away? 🙂 From Wikipedia I read something about it and got a bit better picture.
I wonder why is there the dot after the year number. Is it because of grammar? In Estonian we also use it but in certain cases like ‘the 2nd year’ is ‘2. aasta’, or ‘2023. aasta’ means ‘year 2023’ which is never used as ‘2023rd year’ in English. ‘Year 2023’ can still be directly translated as ‘aasta 2023’ where the dot after number would be a mistake unless this is the end of the sentence.
So having these things in my mind, I find it a bit strange what the dot means. Does ‘100.’ mean in Croatian language ‘year 100’? So that it means exactly year and nothing else? Or does it have more meanings when it is not written on the coin?
Coins are generally OK. I was a bit disappointed when here in Estonia all the coins were designed to look the same just like in Ireland so at least here in this new country, the coins do have some variety.
By http://www.eurocollection.co.uk/2023.html I see that for Estonia the author of that website is waiting for another one too but I don’t know where he gets the official information about the number of different coins that will be issued in different years. Possibly some EU Central Bank website.
