Armenia competed at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, United Kingdom from 27 July to 12 August 2012. This was the nation's fifth consecutive appearance at the Olympics in the post-Soviet era.

The Armenian Olympic Committee sent a total of 25 athletes to the Games, 21 men and 4 women, to compete in 9 sports. The nation's team roughly shared the same size with Beijing and Sydney, only by the number difference between men and women. Armenia also marked its Olympic debut in taekwondo, competed by Arman Yeremyan, who was also the nation's flag bearer at the opening ceremony.

Armenia left London with a total of three medals, one silver and two bronze, which were half the nation's total medal count from Beijing. Notable accomplishments included the nation's first ever silver medal after 16 years, won by Arsen Julfalakyan in Greco-Roman wrestling and the nation's first ever woman Olympic medalist, Hripsime Khurshudyan in weightlifting.
