The Falcon of the Plantagenets Takes its Place Alongside the Beasts of Heraldry 

After the success of the four coins released to date, the fifth coin in The Queen’s Beasts Collection features the Falcon of the Plantagenets. With a keen eye and unrivalled speed, the falcon is one of nature’s most impressive beasts. Prized by the nobility for their hunting skills, in heraldry the falcon represents single-minded determination. The falcon and fetterlock depicted here is a symbol of Edward IV who claimed the throne during the Wars of the Roses.
