The Falcon of the Plantagenets Takes Flight
New Queen's Beasts release soars in pure gold and silver
Unlocking the Path to the Throne
This latest release of the Queen’s Beasts series features the Falcon of Plantagenet. Chosen by King Edward III of house Plantagenet for his love of hawking, the Falcon was given as an emblem to two of Edward’s sons. In these depictions, they were shown standing on a closed fetterlock—perhaps signifying that they had no claim to the throne. In contrast, Edward’s grandson Richard was given an emblem of a white falcon standing on an unlocked and open fetterlock. Richard succeeded Edward as King Richard II.
Jody Clark Design
This addition to the Queen's Beast series was designed and sculpted by Royal Mint engraver Jody Clark. Creator of every Queen's Beast design to date, Clark is best known for creating the most recent official effigy of Queen Elizabeth II used on British coinage.

Each holder bears a label identifying the coin as "One of First Struck." Coins with this designation are coveted among collectors for their greater perceived luster and sharpness of detail.
