The biblical tale of Noah’s Ark is told in the Book of Genesis in the Bible. In this story, God’s disappointment with the sins of mankind leads him to send a destructive flood to wipe away the Earth’s population to start anew. 40 days and 40 nights of rain blanket the world in water, with only Noah and his family, plus two of every animal, spared a gruesome death in order to repopulate the world.
Armenia has a deep connection to this tale from the Christian bible in many ways. First and foremost, Armenia was the first nation to adopt Christianity as its official state religion. The nation’s oldest Christian churches date to the 1st century AD and Christianity became the official state religion in 301 AD. Secondly, and more poignant to this coin design, Mount Ararat was historically located within the borders of Armenia. Ararat is the mount upon which the ark came to rest when the flood waters subsided.
On the obverse of 2019 Silver Armenian Noah’s Ark coin is the image of the coat of arms for the Republic of Armenia. The shield includes quartered sections with different animals and central depiction of Noah’s ark resting on the peak of Mount Ararat above flood waters. The shield is backed by a lion and an eagle.
The reverse of 2019 10 oz Silver Armenian Noah’s Ark coins includes the design from Eduard Kurghinyan of Noah’s ark. The ark is featured here as it floats on the flood waters while the sun rises over Mount Ararat in the background. The foreground includes a dove flying into the picture with an olive branch in its beak.
