The story of Noahs Ark, as featured in the Christian bibles book of Genesis, is one of punishment and redemption for mankind.

When you purchase a 2014 1 oz Armenian Silver Noahs Ark coin from this listing, you receive a coin with an MS69 grade from the NGC. Coins with this grade still have an attractive, sharp strike and the full original luster for the date and mint. The coins do have contact marks, but there are no more than two marks on the coins surface. These marks are considered miniscule and non-distracting as they are not visible without magnification, exist outside the primary focal areas, and no hairlines exist.
In the book of Genesis, God presents Noah with plans for a wooden ark to be built so that his family and all animal species of the world can survive his impending flood. Noahs family and the animals float on the flood waters for 40 days before coming to rest on the side of Mount Ararat. Prior to the conclusion of World War I, Mount Ararat was historically located within the borders of Armenia.
On the reverse side of these coins is the motif of Noahs Ark. In the image, the ark is visible as it floats atop the flood waters. In the background, the sun rises over Mount Ararat, while a single dove flies into the foreground with an olive branch. The obverse displays the Armenian national coat of arms.
The German mint of Geiger Edelmetalle handles production of the Armenian Silver Noahs Ark coin. Each coin is struck using .999 fine silver, with the first coins in the series introduced in 2011.
