Edvard Rusjan (6 July 1886 – 9 January 1911) was a Slovenian aircraft constructor and aviator who made the first flight in Slovenia, in the biplane EDA I. He built the plane together with his brother Josip. The Rusjan brothers made technical improvements to their aircraft, producing at least six different versions.

Slovenian euro coins, first issued for circulation on 1 January 2007, feature a unique design for each coin. The selection process for the coins started in April 2004, involving preliminary discussions with numismatists, designers and experts. The general public was also invited to participate in a public tender concerning proposals of motifs. The cover of the bu set features the Lipizzaner horse.
