The Gospels of Matthew and Luke speak of the city of Bethlehem as the birthplace of Jesus Christ, Lord and Savior to Christians. In these accounts, Mary and Joseph travel from Nazareth to Bethlehem to be counted in a Roman census, one requiring men to return to their city of birth. It was here that these gospels say Mary gave birth to the baby Jesus. A new SilverTowne bar design captures the scene as the Star of Bethlehem illuminated the night sky to guide the Magi to Christ’s birthplace.

The city of Bethlehem is one of the oldest and most significant cities of the Holy Land. Though it was never a large city, it was the birthplace of two significant figures in Judaism and Christianity. The Hebrew Bible records the city was the location where David was born and the city where he was crowned King of Israel.
Centuries later, the Gospels of Matthew and Luke would record that the city of Bethlehem was the location where Jesus Christ was born. While the Gospel of Mark notes that Jesus was from Nazareth, it makes no mention of Bethlehem as the city where Christ was born. Only the Gospel of Matthew notes the presence of a bright, shining star in the night’s sky symbolizing the birth of a Messiah in the city.
On the obverse of 1 oz Silver Star to Bethlehem Bars, you will find a depiction of the night of Christ’s birth. The bright, brilliant Star of Bethlehem shines in the night’s sky above the village. Shepherds sit near a palm tree in the foreground with their flock nearby as they gaze out at the celestial event.
The reverse field of the Silver Star to Bethlehem Bar offers a blank central design element. SilverTowne leaves the main field blank for the purposes of custom engraving, but there are other markings present on the bars. These include a seasonal greeting above with an inscription of the weight, purity, and metal content below.
