2019 Elizabeth II; Falcon of the Plantagenets

The Royal Mint of England introduced the Queens Beast Series of gold and silver bullion coins in 2016 with the most revered heraldic beast in the nations history, the lion. The 2019 release gets started with one of the oldest heraldic beasts in British history in the form of the White Falcon of the Plantagenets. This is the 6th in the commemorative series.

Features
The Falcon of the Plantagenets came to The Queen through Edward IV. The shield in the grasp of the larger Falcon also shows a smaller falcon atop a golden fetterlock, which is partially open. This depicts Edward's claim to the throne. The Falcon was later adopted by Henry VIII and established as a royal beast during the reign of Elizabeth I.
