Armenian Noah’s Ark coins reflect the deep ties to Christianity held by the people of Armenia. Dating to the ancient world, Mount Ararat was located within the borders of the homeland of Armenians. Today, as a result of shifting borders, it is split with Turkey. Armenia was also the first modern nation in the world to adopt Christianity as its official state religion.
On the obverse of the Armenian Noah’s Ark Coin is the image of the nation’s coat of arms. Like all national crests, the shield in the center features imagery critical to Armenia’s history. Notably, the image of Noah’s ark resting on top of Mount Ararat is featured in the center of the national shield.
The reverse of all 2018 5 oz Armenian Silver Noah’s Ark Coins include a design from Eduard Kurghinyan. The design includes a massive ark in the center of the field of the design, and includes Mount Ararat towering into the sky in the background. In the foreground, a dove flies in with an olive branch letting Noah know that there is dry land to be found.
