The Nativity story is primarily found in the New Testament of the Bible. In the Gospel of Matthew, the story focuses on the visit of the Magi (the Three Wise Men) who follow a star to find the infant Jesus in Bethlehem. In the Gospel of Luke, the narrative emphasizes the humble circumstances of Jesus’ birth in a stable, with shepherds being the first to visit.

Early Christian art did not initially depict the Nativity as a separate scene but incorporated elements of the story into larger compositions. For example, early Christian sarcophagi might show the Adoration of the Magi as part of a larger scene.
In the obverse design of Nativity Silver Rounds, you will find a humble Nativity design. In a humble structure, Joseph and Mary sit with Baby Jesus in the arms of Mary. The Three Wise Men have arrived on camels as the Star of Bethlehem rises over the mountains in the distance.
For the reverse face of 1 oz Nativity Silver Round, the mint depicts Christmas floral arrangements with a greeting of Feliz Navidad. The field includes the identifying hallmarks in Spanish.
During the Middle Ages, especially in the Romanesque and Gothic periods, artists began to create more detailed and distinct Nativity scenes. These often included the Holy Family (Mary, Joseph, and the infant Jesus), the Magi, shepherds, angels, and various animals. The setting of the stable and the presence of the manger became iconic elements.
