The story of Noahs Ark from the first book of the Christian bible is almost as intriguing as the connection Armenia has to Christianity, and this story. Armenia was the first modern nation to adopt Christianity as its official state religion.
Even more intriguing, the biblical resting place of Noahs Ark, Mount Ararat, used to be located in Armenia. Prior to World War I, the line between Armenia and Turkey ran over the top of Mount Ararat. Following World War I and the breakup of the Ottoman Empire, Turkeys new borders included all of Mount Ararat as the Turkish and Soviet Russian governments redrew boundaries.

On the obverse side youll find the image of Noahs Ark floating on the flood waters. Mount Ararat is visible in the background, while the dove with an olive branch arrives in the foreground.
