This one ounce gold bullion coin is the sixth addition to The Queen’s Beasts bullion range. Inspired by ancient symbols of power and identity, the range brings to life the ten imposing statues that lined the entrance to Westminster Abbey in 1953 at the coronation of Her Majesty The Queen.
In heraldry, the falcon symbolises single-minded determination. First used by Edward III, the device was also employed by his grandson Richard II as a Royal Badge. Likewise, Richard’s uncles employed falcons as motifs. The device became particularly associated with the House of York.
Widely used by Edward IV, the first Yorkist king, his falcon sits upon a golden fetterlock, slightly open to symbolise Edward’s claim to the throne. The falcon was later adopted by Henry VII, who united the Houses of York and Lancaster. By the reign of Elizabeth I, it had been accepted as an established royal beast.
Following the success of previous coins in the collection, this gold one ounce edition features another original design by Jody Clark. Majestic and imposing, the falcon perches on a shield, embodying suitability for high office.
This bullion coin from The Queen’s Beasts Collection is also available as a gold quarter-ounce and a silver two-ounce coin.
