A brief annotation After adopting Christianity in Armenia (301), creation of the Armenian script assumed ever greater urgency. In 405-406, by the assignment of the Armenian Church, that task was accomplished by Mesrop Mashtots (362 - 440) – the scientist and the missionary of the Christian faith. Mesrop Mashtots invented the letters of the Armenian alphabet and became the founder of Armenian national literature and script. Creation of the alphabet was one of the major events in the history of Armenia. It entailed incredible upswing of literature, science and culture. Letter honoring remained unshakable for Armenians at all times. Wars, genocide, earthquakes carried away an infinite number of lives, destroyed everything gained over the years, but were powerless against the letters. «Letters of the Armenian Alphabet» coin series is unique by its range: it includes 39 gold and 39 silver coins, each one dedicated to a certain letter of the Armenian alphabet.

предложили бы попробовать Вардану Варданяну. Ему больше удаются эксклюзивы. А может они здесь и не требовались?
