In 1999, Dr. Michael Molnar, a Christian astronomer, published "The Star of Bethlehem - The Legacy of the Magi." His findings included the meaning behind the "Ram and Star" coins from Antioch along with the most likely "heavenly alignment" constituting the "Star of Bethlehem." He concluded that the design was meant to recognize the birth of the Messiah in Judaea and that His birth occurred on April 17, 6 BC. Since his book was published, I have continuously accumulated these coins by date and conducted research into the purpose of their minting. My conclusions not only confirm Dr. Molnar’s findings but also show that this "Star of Bethlehem" motif was used frequently between 6 AD and 253 AD. Ultimately, there are over 20 different dates for these commemorative coins and the dates cluster around major anniversary dates of Yeshua’s (Jesus’s) "birth" and/or "death and resurrection.."
