Obverse design elements on the 2021 Armenian Silver Noah’s Ark Coins include the national coat of arms for the Republic of Armenia. Adopted after the dissolution of the Soviet Union and Armenia’s emergence as a fully independent state, the seal is flanked by an eagle and lion with a quartered shield featuring different, historic images of the eagle and lion. At the center of the shield is a small crest with the image of Noah’s ark on the peak of Mount Ararat.
Reverse design visuals on 2021 1 oz Armenian Silver Noah’s Ark Coins feature Eduard Kurghinyan’s depiction of Noah’s ark. Based on the Biblical tale from the Book of Genesis that spoke of a flood God had sent to cleanse the world of the sins of humanity. In this design, the ark is seen floating on the floodwaters as the sun begins to rise and the rains have ended. In hopes of finding dry land, Noah has sent out a dove that is shown returning with an olive branch in its beak.
