King Henry II ascended the throne of England in 1154 as the first ruler in the House of Plantagenet. Originating in Anjou, France, the Plantagenets would produce 14 kings reigning over England from 1154 to the death of King Richard III at Bosworth Field in 1485. During this time, the kingdom expanded and matured in unique ways.
Among the important rulers of the Plantagenets was King Edward III. The man responsible for the introduction of the White Falcon of the Plantagenets into the royal arms, Edward III reigned for 50 years and oversaw England’s growth into one of the most powerful armies in Europe, while also overseeing governmental and legislative changes that benefited the kingdom.
On the reverse of 2019 2 oz Silver British Queen’s Beast Falcon of the Plantagenets Coins is the image of the white falcon. Edward III had a love of hawking and chose the white falcon as his personal seal. The white falcon on the shield clutches an open fetterlock while another falcon supports the shield from above.
The obverse of 2019 Silver British Queen’s Beast Falcon coins features the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is depicted here in the fifth-generation design which sees her wearing the Royal Diadem crown and captures her at the age of 89.
