Obverse design elements include the national coat of arms for the Republic of Armenia. Adopted after the dissolution of the Soviet Union and Armenias emergence as a fully independent state, the seal is flanked by an eagle and lion with a quartered shield featuring different, historic images of the eagle and lion. At the centre of the shield is a small crest with the image of Noahs ark on the peak of Mount Ararat.
Reverse design features Eduard Kurghinyan’s depiction of Noahs ark. Based on the Biblical tale from the Book of Genesis that spoke of a flood God had sent to cleanse the world of the sins of humanity. In this design, the ark is seen floating on the floodwaters as the sun begins to rise and the rains have ended. In hopes of finding dry land, Noah has sent out a dove that is shown returning with an olive branch in its beak.
