Stunning Noah's Ark Design
The obverse of this Silver Noah's Ark features the Armenian coat of arms. A lion and an eagle support a shield, which is divided into five sections. The center of the shield features the ark sitting on Mt. Ararat, while the other sections bear symbols of various dynasties in the country's history.
On the reverse, Noah's Ark floats on the high waters of the flood. Mt. Ararat stands in the background, with only the top portion of the mountain extending above the water. A dove holds an olive branch in the lower left. The Bible says that the dove carrying the olive branch portended the end of the flood.
Nearly Flawless MS69 ER
Because this coin has only minuscule imperfections, and very few of those, it received Numismatic Guaranty Corporation's (NGC) second-highest grade, Mint State 69 (MS69). It was also labeled an Early Releases because NGC received it for grading no more than 30 days after its initial release from the mint.
