In the book of Genesis, God punishes mankind for its sins by sending a flood to cleanse the Earth. The story tells of one man, Noah, and his family being chosen to survive the flood by building an ark. This biblical tale is captured on the reverse side of the 2014 1 oz Silver Armenian Noah’s Ark Coin. Today, you can purchase this coin from Silver.com with an MS69 grade from the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation.
Noah and his family were chosen to survive God’s wrath by building an ark. On that ark, they housed two of every animal from the world so that mankind and the animal kingdom could restart after the devastation of the flood. The 2014 1 oz Silver Armenian Noah’s Ark coin is part of a series that has been produced since 2011. Like other national silver bullion programs, such as the Canadian Maple Leaf and American Silver Eagle, the imagery on each side of the coin is consistent from year to year.
On the obverse side of the 2014 1 oz Silver Armenian Noah’s Ark coin is the national coat of arms of Armenia. In addition to the national emblem, there is an engraving of “Republic of Armenia” in both Armenian and English.
The reverse side of the coin bears the stunning image of Noah’s Ark. The craft can be seen floating atop the flood waters as the sun rises above Mount Ararat in the background. In the foreground, a dove swoops in holding an olive branch in its beak. Engravings on this side of the coin include “Noah’s Ark” in both Armenian and English.
Armenia does not produce the Silver Armenian Noah’s Ark coin within its borders. The Geiger Edelmetalle facility in Germany mints the coins for Armenia to distribute as legal tender. These coins are available with a grade of MS69 from the NGC, meaning the strike is attractive and sharp, with fewer than two blemishes on the coin.
