A Historic Symbol of Royal Heritage

The 2020 Queen's Beasts Silver Falcon of the Plantagenets coin is a remarkable addition to the prestigious series of 10 oz Silver Queen's Beasts coins from the Royal Mint. Embrace the opportunity to own the sixth coin in this captivating collection by adding it to your cart today!

During the coronation of Her Majesty The Queen, ten heraldic beasts stood as guardians. Sculpted by James Woodford RA for the 1953 coronation ceremony at Westminster Abbey, these magnificent Queen's Beasts each stood at an impressive six feet tall. Representing different strands of royal ancestry, these heraldic creatures symbolized the unity of diverse lineages within a young woman ascending to the throne. Inspired by the King's Beasts of Henry VIII that still grace the bridge over the moat at Hampton Court Palace, each noble beast served as a heraldic badge for previous generations.

Evocative Inspirations and Modern Design

While the original Queen's Beasts can be admired at the Canadian Museum of History in Quebec, the United Kingdom is graced with Portland stone replicas, also crafted by James Woodford, which majestically watch over Kew Gardens. These mythical and ancient creatures, including the lion, griffin, falcon, bull, yale, greyhound, dragon, unicorn, and horse, have not only captured the imagination but also served as an inspiration for the talented Royal Mint Coin Designer Jody Clark.

The Significance of the Falcon of the Plantagenets

The Falcon of the Plantagenets holds a profound place within The Queen's Beasts lineage, as it was passed down to The Queen through Edward IV. The shield clasped by the larger Falcon reveals a smaller falcon perched atop a golden fetterlock, which symbolizes Edward's claim to the throne. Later, the Falcon was adopted by Henry VIII and established as a royal beast during the reign of Elizabeth I. This regal creature represents a compelling link to historical events and the rich heritage of the Plantagenet dynasty.

In conclusion, the 2020 Queen's Beasts Silver Falcon of the Plantagenets coin showcases the extraordinary craftsmanship and symbolism of the Queen's Beasts collection. With its historic significance, intricate design, and connection to royal lineage, this coin exemplifies the Royal Mint's commitment to producing coins of unparalleled beauty and historical resonance. Secure your place in this fascinating numismatic journey by acquiring this exceptional coin today.
