Slovenia - 50 tolarjev

Slovenia - 50 tolarjev - 1992 - P13

Baron Jurij Bartolomej Vega (1754–1802) was a Slovene mathematician, physicist and artillery officer. Although he worked in the subjects of ballistics, physics and astronomy, his major contributions are to the mathematics of the second half of the 18th century. The front of this note shows an image of him and a drawing from Vega's "Treatise on the Sphere". The back shows the solar system and the Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts.
