2018 Armenia 500 Drams Noah's Ark 1oz. .999 Silver (No Tax)

The Noah's Ark coin features supreme minting quality and purity produced by one of the most modern private mints of Germany. Each coin is legal tender at its face value and is issued by the Central Bank of Armenia.

The Armenian Noah's Ark Silver coin series celebrates one of the most important stories from the Christian Bible, the Great Flood. Narrated in Genesis 6:1-9:17, the story of Noah's ark is one of faith, perseverance and promise. God was disappointed in all of mankind, for he saw wickedness and evil in everyone’s hearts. That is, except for Noah. Noah had earned God’s great favor due to his righteous life and great faith. God prepared to bring the Great Flood to the earth, and destroy everyone but Noah and his family. God compelled Noah to build an ark, a special kind of giant boat, and load it with a breeding pair of every kind of animal. Noah’s righteous family and the animals would begin again and populate the world afresh, eliminating the scourge of wickedness.

When it started raining, Noah brought his wife and family onto the ark to endure a 40-day deluge of rain. The arc then drifted on the high flooding for another 150 days, before coming to rest on a Mt. Ararat. Noah sent out a dove to survey their surroundings, but it returned. Seven days later he sent out another dove and it returned with an olive leaf, showing that it had found dry land. Then, God sent the rainbow as a symbol of his promise to never destroy earth by flood again.

Historically, a large portion of Mt. Ararat belonged to Armenia, as the border between Armenia and Turkey ran over the top of the mountain. Following World War I, Armenia was divided between the Soviet Union and Turkey and Mt. Ararat became part of Turkey. However, Mt. Ararat remains an integral part of the national identity of Armenia. The symbol for “mountain” is still featured in the Coat of arms of Armenia in honor of Mt. Ararat’s role in Armenia’s history.
