The New York Bank Hoard. Armenia has a rich, ancient history that is all too often overlooked. In 301, it became the first ever Christian nation. Centuries later, it played an important role in Christian attempts to free the Holy Land from Muslim rule. It is that period to which this tram dates.

Struck from silver, this rare coin offers a look into a country whose history played an important role in the development of Western Civilization. The crowned King Levon sits on his thrown, facing the holder on the obverse. The thrown is adorned by lions. The king holds a Cross and a fleur-de-lis, two important symbols of Christianity. Along the rim is an inscription that translates to Levon King of the Armenians.

On the reverse, two lions stand on guard, on either side of a long cross. Encircling the design is a rim inscription that translates to By the Will of God.
