The Silver Armenian Noah’s Ark Coins debuted in 2011 with 1/4, 1/2, and 1 oz coins. The 2012 issue year included four new options in the form of 5 oz, 10 oz, 1 kilo, and 5 kilo coins.

On the reverse of all 2019 5 oz Silver Armenian Noah’s Ark Coins are available with the image of Noah’s ark. Designed by Eduard Kurghinyan, the design features Noah’s ark floating on the flood waters. The sun is depicted in the background rising over the peak of Mount Ararat while a dove flies into the design field in the foreground.
Historically, Mount Ararat was found within the borders of Armenia, which is why the image features on the national silver bullion coin. However, following World War I the nation was split between Turkey and the Soviet Union, with the previous border between Armenia and Turkey running over the top of the mountain. It is now found entirely within Turkey following those border changes.
The obverse of 2019 Silver Armenian Noah’s Ark coins includes the coat of arms for the Republic of Armenia. This includes the national heraldic shield in the center with a lion and eagle backing the shield.
