The Armenian Silver Noah’s Ark bullion coin is a tribute to Armenia’s connection with the tale of Noah’s Ark. First released in 2011, the Noah’s Ark bullion coin is issued by the Central Bank of Armenia, although it is not produced in the country. Available in a wide variety of sizes including 1/4 oz, 1/2 oz, 1 oz, 5 oz, 10 oz, 1 kilo and 5 kilos, all containing .999 fine Silver, this coin is valued all over the world for its purity, quality and beautiful homage to Noah’s Ark.

The obverse of the coin features the coat of arms of the Republic of Armenia and the face value, metal purity and mintmark. The reverse image, designed by Eduard Kurghinyan, proudly boasts a dove in flight with an olive branch in its beak and Noah’s Ark floating on the floodwaters in front of Mount Ararat with the rising sun in the background. This design was chosen because of Armenia’s connection to Mount Ararat and its connection to the biblical tale of Noah’s Ark. As told in the Book of Genesis, following the great flood, Noah’s Ark landed at the peak of Mount Ararat. Although it is widely believed by scholars and scientists alike that this mountain is not the actual resting place of the great ark, the significance of Mount Ararat to the Armenian people has been memorialized on this coin.

The Armenian Silver Noah’s Ark bullion coin is not produced in the eastern European country, but rather in Germany by Leipziger Edelmetallverarbeitungs GmbH, an affiliate of the private mint Geiger Edelmetalle. The mint, one of the most modern in the world, has more than 1,000 years of experience in mining and processing Silver. Geiger Edelmetalle was founded in 1218 in Leipzig, by merchants who established the oldest Silver trade in Germany.

High quality silver coin

By  Robert

from Jersey City, NJ

5.0

There is no shortage of interesting silver coins on the market. This coin distunguishes itself from the many other competing high quality coins in two points: 1) a truly attractive design, and, 2) a very interesting way to package 20 coins into a tube. The manufacturer seals the tube with a special tape claiming that removing that tape would release the special gas inside the tube which is supposed to protect the coins from tarnishing. Buying the tube involves a paradox: If you do not open the tube, you will never be able to enjoy the beauty of the coins. On the other hand, if you do open the tube, you may run the risk of tarnishing the silver coins. My solution to this problem was: I ordered 21 coins which means I got a full tube of 20 coins completely sealed and one additional coin for viewing it. As usual, Apmex did an excellent job of packaging and delivering the coins. Thanks!

Pros

  • Collectible (lower mintage)

I purchased a few of these to give as gifts to my nieces and nephews for Christmas. They really liked the coins! I was able to give something they'll keep and appreciate forever, while the image reminds them of the gift of God's love and forgiveness to all who will receive it.

Beautiful Coin, Don't expect a 70

By  Vaughan

from Fort Worth

4.0

The Design on both sides is wonderful. It's luster is phenomenal. The mint that makes these fills the tube with some kind of gas that prevents toning and the tube is sealed shut. But, the sun on the ark side is raised a little too much and rubs the other coins in the tube. Every single coin in my tube is not just scratched, but rubbed down in the center of the sun. An approximate 1 to 3mm oval is worn down in the center of the sun. So, don't plan on sending them off to get graded. However, if you can find a 70, buy it!!! Cuz there won't be very many.

Pros

  • Collectible (lower mintage)
  • Value (low premium over spot)
  • Attractive Design
