Armenia’s culture is full of Christian heritage, as Christianity is Armenia’s official religion. In fact, Mount Ararat, where Noah’s Ark is said to have landed after the flood, is located in modern day Armenia. For these reasons, Armenia decided to celebrate this heritage by designing a silver bullion coin featuring Noah’s Ark.
