While the 2019 Armenian Silver Noah’s Ark Coins are in their ninth year of availability, the 5 oz coin is actually available for an eighth year in 2019. The 2011 debut of the Armenian Silver Noah’s Ark featured only a 1/4 oz, 1/2 oz, and 1 oz silver coin. Geiger Edelmetalle expanded the series in 2012 to include this 5 oz coin along with a 10 oz, 1 kilo, and 5 kilo coin.
The Noah’s Ark artwork on the coins was created by Eduard Kurghinyan for the series. The coins feature a reverse design that reenacts the moment when Noah and his companions on the ark learn that the flood waters are subsiding.
On the reverse of 2019 5 oz Armenian Silver Noah’s Ark Coins, you’ll find the design of a large ark as it floats atop the flood waters. The sun rises over the peaks of Mount Ararat in the background as a dove flies into the design field in the foreground clutching an olive branch in its beak.
The obverse of all 2019 Armenian Silver Noah’s Ark Coins features the coat of arms for the Republic of Armenia. This design includes the national heraldic shield in the center backed by a lion and eagle in the background. Engravings include the “LEV” mint mark from Geiger Edelmetalle, the weight, metal content, purity, face value, and date mark of the coin.
