Armenia was the first modern kingdom or nation in the world to adopt Christianity as its official state religion. But its association with the religion runs much deeper than that. In Genesis, Noahs Ark comes to rest on the sides of Mount Ararat.
Mount Ararat was, historically, within the borders of Armenia. Only the end of World War I, the dissolution of the Ottoman Empire, and politically drawn boundaries could apparently move mountains, as the entire mountain was gifted to Turkey when borders were redrawn at the end of the war. Prior to that event, the border between the two regions ran directly over Mount Ararat.
Each of these 2017 5 oz Armenian Silver Noahs Ark Coins is available to you in BU condition. Coins in BU condition have no signs of wear and tear, though you may notice a range of minor flaws including breaks in the luster, spotted surfaces, and contact marks from the production process at the mint.
The obverse of each 2017 1 oz Armenian Silver Noahs Ark Coin features the image of the Armenian Coat of Arms. In the center of the shield, you will see a depiction of the tale of Noahs Ark with a boat on top of Mount Ararat with water below. To the left, you will see an eagle. On the right, there is a lion.
On the reverse of each coin, you will see the ark and the flood described in the Book of Genesis in the Christian Bible. You can see the dove with an olive branch flying over the boat that is supposedly filled with various animals.
Every Armenian Silver Noahs Ark Coin is minted by Geiger Edelmetalle, a minting facility in Germany. Geiger produces a wide array of both gold and silver precious metals products.
