Armenia issues commemorative 500-dram note

The Central Bank of Armenia has introduced a new commemorative banknote of 500-dram on 22 November 2017. The note commemorates the Ark of Noah which according to the Bible came to rest upon the mount Ararat in Armenia after the flood. 

The note shows on the front a relic from Noah’s Ark in green-gold Kinegram and the Etchmiadzin Cathedral building (the oldest cathedral in the world), Mount Ararat and a flying dove with an olive branch in it beak (a symbol that the flood was over and land was returning). The back of the note shows again Mount Ararat and some animals and birds with Noah and his family. We can also see a flying eagle in the sky. 

The note measures 140 x 76 mm, is a hybrid composite and was printed by Giesecke & Devrient
