Geiger Edelmetalle originally introduced the Silver Armenian Noah’s Ark coins in 2011 with a 1 oz silver, 1/2 oz silver, and 1/4 oz silver coin available. It took just one year for the series to more than double as the 2012 issue of the coins included four new weights, each one greater than 1 oz silver in weight.
The 2012 release featured new coins in 5 oz silver, 10 oz silver, 1 Kilo silver, and 5 Kilo silver. By in large, these four coins had similar demand and mintage figures, with the exception of the 5 Kilo coin. For example, in 2012 the 10 oz coin sold the lowest 2,003 coins, the 1 Kilo 2,449 coins, and 5 oz 3,550 coins. The 5 Kilo coin, by contrast, sold just 163 specimens. The 5 Kilo coin has never topped 476, a mark it hit in 2014. In 2019, the other three large weights remained close at 1,945 for the 10 oz coin, 2,123 for the 5 oz coin, and 2,670 for the 1 Kilo coin, while just 284 5 Kilo coins were issued.
The obverse side of 2018 5 Kilo Silver Armenian Noah’s Ark Coins comes with a depiction of the national coat of arms for the Republic of Armenia. The national emblem features a quartered shield with lions and eagles in the four quadrants in different reliefs. At the center is another shield with Noah’s Ark resting on Mount Ararat’s peak. The shield is supported on the sides by a Lion, left, and Eagle, right.
On the reverse face of 2018 5 Kilo Armenian Noah’s Ark Coins is an artistic rendition of Noah’s ark. Designed by Eduard Kurghinyan, this image captures the ark after the rains of ended as the floodwaters begin to subside. A dove flies into view with an olive branch in its beak as the sun rises of Mount Ararat in the distance.
