Armenian Silver Noah's Ark
Stunning, uncirculated (BU) 2016 Silver Noah’s Ark coins, the official sovereign coin of Armenia is a prized addition to any coin collection. The 2016 mint of the coin marks the 5th anniversary of the ‘Eduard Kurghinyan’ design released by Germany’s Geiger Edlemetalle Mint. Each .9999 fine silver coin carries a value of 500 Armenia Drams and is backed by the Armenian Government.
The obverse of the coin features the official seal of the Republic of Armenia with Mount Ararat (believed to be the final resting place of the Ark.) appearing at the centre of the seal. The coin is bordered by the words ‘2016’, ‘REPUBLIC OF ARMENIA’ and ‘500 Dram’ in Armenian and English. The reverse side features Noah’s Ark on the flood waters set against a sunrise over Mount Ararat with a dove carrying an olive branch in the foreground. The words, ‘NOAH’S ARK’ inscribed on the rim in English and Armenian, complete the coin’s authenticity.
