Mount Ararat is a very real location in Eastern Europe that was, for a long time, the possession of the Ottoman Empire. In the 20th century, modern Armenia was created in the aftermath of World War I and the dissolution of the Ottoman Empire. As a result, Mount Ararat was moved when borders were drawn from its traditional home in Armenia to a possession of Turkey.
It is said that Noahs Ark, built to preserve mankind and the animals of the world from a devastating flood, came to rest on the sides of Mount Ararat. Not only do Armenians lay claim to this, but the nation was also the first modern kingdom to official accept Christianity as a national religion.
The reverse side of all Armenian Silver Noahs Ark coins features a depiction of the sun rising over the peak of Mount Ararat as Noahs Ark floats on the floodwaters in the middle-ground of the design. In the foreground, a dove flies into the picture holding an olive branch as a sign that the flood is receding and dry land is accessible.
On the obverse of all 2017 oz Armenian Silver Noahs Ark coins is the coat of arms for Armenia. Engravings on both the obverse and reverse side of the coin are repeated in English and in Armenian.
Each 2017 oz Armenian Silver Noahs Ark Coin available here from Wallace Precious Metals is in BU condition. Coins in BU condition show no signs of wear and tear, though you may notice minor flaws such as breaks in the luster, spotted surfaces, or contact marks from striking the blanks during production.
