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 tubes of 20. Non-mint lot quantities will ship in individual plastic flips. Unfortunately the wooden Geiger boxes are prone to cracking, and as a result we cannot promise that large quantities will ship in their mint wooden box.

The Armenian Silver Noahs Ark coin bears the same motif each year, that of the biblical narrative of Noahs Ark. In the story, God comes to Noah with plans to construct an ark meant to save his family and all of the worlds animal species. Upset with the sins of mankind, God sent a flood to cleanse the Earth. Noahs family and the animals survived for 40 days in the ark, floating atop the flood waters.
On the reverse side of each Armenian Silver Noahs Ark coin is the depiction of the ark as it rests atop the flood waters. In the background, the sun rises over the peaks of Mount Ararat. In the foreground, a lone dove is visible holding the olive branch that proved to Noah it was safe to leave the ark.
