The House of Plantagenets actually originated from lands near Anjou in France. It wasn’t until 1154 that the family took over the throne of England when Henry II ascended to power. Over the course of more than 300 years to come, the House of Plantagenets would split into the House of York and Lancaster, which eventually led to the Wars of the Roses over English succession lines. King Edward III is among the more prominent rulers from the Plantagenets and brought the White Falcon into the royal heraldry.

The obverse of 2019 2 oz Silver British Queen’s Beast Falcon of the Plantagenets Coins features the fifth-generation design of Queen Elizabeth II. This portrait was designed in 2015 by Jody Clark and depicts the Queen in right-profile relief around the age of 89.
On the reverse face of 2019 Silver British Queen’s Beast Falcon Coins bears the image of the White Falcon of Edward III. King Edward III chose the White Falcon as part of his official badge because of his love for hawking and falconry, but the badge designs over time were adjusted by his descendants and others who would use it. This badge with its second white falcon inside an open fetterlock reflects the design of the badge during the Queen’s coronation.
