Christian theology talks of the nativity as a marker for the incarnation of Jesus as a second Adam, a figure whose fulfillment is the divine will of God. The Son of God was sent to Earth to atone for the sins of the original man, Adam.
Jesus is the child of the virgin Mary and Joseph of Nazareth. Joseph and Mary are together, but when she becomes pregnant none but Joseph believe her story of an angel informing her she will carry to birth the Son of God.
Joseph and Mary arrive late in the night in Bethlehem with only a barn left for them to occupy. It is here that Jesus is born to Joseph and Mary, marking the start of a journey that will end in his death to cleanse the sins of mankind.
On the reverse of all 2016 2 oz The Birth of Jesus Silver Biblical Coins you’ll find the image of the Nativity scene. Surrounded by animals, you can see baby Jesus lying in a humble manger as Mary sits beside him and his father Joseph behind. A crowd gathers to see this child, with the engraving of “Birth of Jesus” above.
The obverse of all coins in the Biblical Silver Series from Scottsdale Mint has the third-generation depiction of Queen Elizabeth II. Created in 1984 by Raphael Maklouf, the image captures the Queen at a much younger age and was used on British and commonwealth coinage from 1984 to 1997.
With each coin in this release, you’ll receive your product in a Bible-themed display box. The included Certificate of Authenticity has an individual number that matches the laser-engraved edge-lettering used on each coin.
