The biblical tale of Noahs Ark comes to the world through the book of Genesis in the Christian bible. It tells the story of a God whose patience with humanity has run out. God chooses Noahs family to build an ark and save the animals of the world from an impending flood meant to wipe mankinds sins from the world.
This narrative is captured beautifully on the Armenian Silver Noahs Ark coin. Armenia has a deep connection to Christianity, having been the first nation in modern history to adopt it as the official state religion. Also, the ark is said to have come to rest on Mount Ararat, which was historically located within the borders of Armenia.
Each of the 2016 1 oz Armenian Silver Noahs Ark coins in this listing has a grade of Mint State 69 from the NGC. Near-perfect coins exhibit their full, original mint luster, but also have as many as two minor detracting flaws on the surface.
On the obverse is the image of Noahs Ark as it floats atop the calm flood waters. In the foreground a dove flies into view holding an olive branch, while the rising sun peeks above the top of Mount Ararat in the background.
The reverse face of the coin bears the official seal of the nation of Armenia, as well as engravings indicating the year of issue and face value of the coin in the local Armenian currency, the Dram.
