The Armenian Noah’s Ark Silver Coin is among the newest coin programs on the market. However, it’s already proven to be among the most popular. With many sizes and variations to choose from, you can learn all about these Armenian Noah’s Ark Silver Coins right here, at Provident Metals.
The series is inspired by the well-known Bible story of Noah’s Ark. God punished mankind with a flood because of their collective sins. However, Noah is spared. God tells Noah and his family that a flood is coming and that they need to build a large boat that can contain them and at least two of every animal species. The entire Earth is submerged in water. Eventually, Noah and his ark find shelter atop Mount Ararat.
This snow-capped volcano serves as the basis for the obverse design. While Mount Ararat is technically in Turkey, part of the mountain used to reside in Armenia’s borders. Armenia was eventually divided though, and the volcano became a part of Turkey. However, the mountain is best seen today, from Armenia.
The series has been issued annually since 2011. The series debuted with three distinct sizes (1/4 oz, 1/2 oz, and 1 oz.) The following year, four more weights were introduced (5 oz, 10 oz, 1 kilogram, 5 kilogram.) Coins have been issued in these sizes annually ever since.
Every coin has a purity of .999 pure silver. Each weight also has a unique face value.
While they have the backing of Armenia, these coins are struck by Geiger Edelmetalle, the oldest silver trading house in Germany.
