Please be aware that these coins ship in the exact condition as we receive them from the Geiger Edelmetalle Mint. We do not cherry-pick any coins for grading or purchase any second-hand material, so you can be sure the coins you receive will be in brand new condition and ship in mint-sealed capsules. Unfortunately the wooden Geiger boxes are prone to cracking, and as a result we cannot promise that box quantities will ship in their mint wooden box.
The Geiger Edelmetalle mint first released the Armenian Silver Noah’s Ark coin collection in 2011. Since then, this dynamic series has been captivating investors and collectors alike with its stunning rendition of the famed biblical epic. Recently, it has the pleasure of presenting the third installment to its exclusive collection, the 10 oz Armenian Silver Noah’s Ark Coin. This particular coin has been composed from 10 troy ounces of 99.9% pure silver and possesses face value of 5,000 dram. Every coin included in this collection is guaranteed to arrive in mint condition, sealed in either a protective plastic sleeve or a tube of 20 to prevent any damage during shipping and handling.
The obverse of the coin portrays one of the most pivotal moments in the story: the calm after the storm. It depicts a dove, flying towards the ark with an olive branch in its beak to deliver a message of hope. Behind it sits the ark, drifting along the peaceful flood waters. Even further in the distance is Mt. Ararat, basking in the rays of the sun. From the crests of the gentle waves to the beams of light emanating from the sun, viewers are certain to appreciate the subtle details that contribute to the sense of hope and serenity within this scene. Serving as border to this picturesque landscape is the phrase “Noah’s Ark” inscribed in both English and Armenian.
Proudly representing Armenia’s pride and spirit on the reverse side of the coin is its national coat of arms. It features an eagle and a lion bearing a large shield. Beneath the shield are a series of objects to represent the struggles of values of the Armenian people including a sword, a chain, a stalk of wheat, a feather and a ribbon. As with the obverse side of the coin, the reverse side features a border of text with the title “Republic of Armenia” in both English and Armenian. Also engraved on the coin are the coin’s weight, purity, denomination and mintage year.
With its poignant imagery and exceptional craftsmanship, this 10 oz 2014 Armenian Silver Noah’s Ark coin will undoubtedly become a cherished collectible for generations to come.
