When the Bible discusses the birth of Jesus Christ, the event takes place in a humble barn in the city of Bethlehem. The future savior of mankind was born in humble surroundings, with nothing but straw in a manger for his first bed and animals surrounding his parents as they desperately sought shelter for the night as Mary gave birth. Today, the nativity scene is a staple of the Christmas season as a celebration of Christ’s birth. Now, 1 oz Silver Nativity Rounds are available to you for purchase online at Silver.com.

There are varying accounts in Christianity regarding the specifics of the birth of Jesus Christ. While the primary accounts agree that his birth took place in Bethlehem in a humble barn, the varying accounts of who was and was not there come to the forefront in the varying depictions of the nativity used today.
In some visions of the nativity, the design sticks to the main family unit. These simpler depictions of the moment show only Joseph, Mary, and the small baby Jesus in a manger. Other nativity scenes are far more extravagant and incorporate animals such as sheep, goats, cows, and a mule. Some even include a shepherd and the Three Wise Men.
The obverse of the 1 oz Silver Nativity Rounds comes with a simple depiction of the nativity. In this design, the baby Jesus is in a manger with straw for bedding in the foreground. Mary and Joseph huddle around their newborn son as a brilliant star is featured in the background field.
On the reverse side of Silver Nativity Rounds, SilverTowne has left the primary design field blank. This is done to allow for custom engraving requests when rounds are purchased directly from the mint by customers. With that said, you will notice an ornate element around the rim and inscriptions of the identifying hallmarks.
These 1 oz Silver Nativity Rounds are available to you new from the mint. Individual rounds are available in plastic flips. Multiples of 20 ship in tubes, while multiples of 500 ship in boxes.
