Armenia has a deep connection to the tale of Noahs Ark. The Armenian nation was the first in the world to adopt Christianity as an official state religion. Additionally, the resting place of the ark, Mount Ararat, was historically located within the boundaries of the nation. Only the redrawing of national boundaries following World War I changed that fact.
On the reverse side of all Armenian Silver Noahs Ark coins is a depiction of the ark before it came to rest atop Mount Ararat. The ark itself is featured in the middle, with a dove flying into the foreground as the sun rises over the peaks of Mount Ararat in the background.
The obverse side of the coin bears the coat of arms for the Republic of Armenia, as well as the identifying features of the coin, such as its weight, purity, metal content, and face value. All engravings on the coins obverse and reverse faces are included in English and Armenian.
Each coin available to you today has a near-perfect grade of MS69. Coins in this condition have their full, original luster, with a maximum of two minor detracting flaws. Germanys Geiger Edelmetalle Mint, in business since 1218, is responsible for production of these coins on behalf of Armenia.
