All 10 coins in the Queen’s Beast Series from the Royal Mint of England feature artwork from Jody Clark. The most recent art prior to this series from Clark was the fifth-generation effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. This latest effigy captures the Queen at the age of 89 and is presently in use on all British circulation and commemorative coinage.
The heraldic beasts to feature in the Queen’s Beast Series are relevant to the Queen on various levels. First and foremost, each creature is part of Britain’s long history and that of its royal arms. Secondly, the animals depicted in this series were all depicted as carved statues in front of Westminster Abbey in 1953 when the Queen entered for her official coronation as the Queen of England.
On the obverse of 2019 1/4 oz Gold British Queen’s Beast Falcon of the Plantagenets Coins is the image of Her Majesty. Queen Elizabeth II’s effigy features on all British coinage and has since 1952. This design is the latest in that long line of artwork and includes the guilloche background design element.
The reverse face of 2019 Gold British Queen’s Beast Falcon Coins bears the image of the White Falcon of Edward III. King Edward III was a fan of hawking and falconry, and as such chose the white falcon in his official symbol. It would be carried on for generations by his younger sons, and eventually used by his great-great-grandson King Edward IV.
These 2019 1/4 oz Gold British Queen’s Beast Falcon Coins come inside of protective packaging when purchased individually. Bulk options include tubes of 25 coins or Monster Boxes of 500 coins with 20 tubes in total.
