“The Queen’s Beasts falcons were the sixth animal to join the Queen’s Beasts series”
Starting mintage in 2016 with the “Lion of England” coin, the Queen’s Beasts series has quickly become a modern classic. It honors the 10 heraldic animal statues that presided over Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II at her coronation. Notably, it also introduced the Royal Mint’s first 2 ounce silver bullion coin.
This edition of the Queen’s Beasts falcons depicts a stylized design of the English symbol the Falcon of the Plantagenets. This symbol gained importance when King Edward III of the House of Plantagenet used it as his badge. Edward III is famed for restoring the authority of the monarchy after his tyrannical father, Edward II, was deposed. This is quite the feat, as no king had been deposed before Edward II.
The coin’s reverse, specifically, depicts a realistic falcon grasping this classic Falcon of the Plantagenet coat of arms in its talons. The coin’s weight, purity, and year surround the rim, as does the phrase “FALCON OF THE PLANTAGENETS.” Meanwhile, the coin’s reverse features the classic Jody Clark effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, along with the coin’s denomination.
Commemorate the strength of England’s monarchy with one of these beautiful coins by visiting Bullion Exchanges today.
