The House of Plantagenet ruled over England from 1154 to 1485, a period of more than 300 years which saw some 14 kings rule over England from the family. From the main family line, Edward III stands out as one of the prominent kings from this house to rule over the Kingdom of England.
It is his favored seal which appears fifth in the series of Proof Queen’s Beast Coins from the Royal Mint. A fan of hawking and falconry, Edward III used a white falcon as his official seal. It was often paired in his royal arms with a shield that featured a second falcon holding an open fetterlock.
On the reverse of the 2019 5 oz Proof Gold British Queen’s Beast Falcon of the Plantagenets coins is the image of the white falcon from the coronation of Elizabeth II. This design includes a white falcon above the shield, with a second white falcon on the shield clutching an open fetterlock. The fetterlock’s position was often used as a symbol of power. A closed fetterlock symbolized an individual with no claim to the throne, something Edward III’s younger sons often implemented. As the rightful heir and ruling Queen of England, Elizabeth II uses an open fetterlock.
The obverse of 2019 Proof Gold British Queen’s Beast Falcon coins includes Queen Elizabeth II’s effigy. Her Majesty is featured in right-profile relief in a fifth-generation design completed by Jody Clark.
These 2019 5 oz Proof Gold British Queen’s Beast Falcon of the Plantagenents Coins feature a wooden display box with a Certificate of Authenticity. The coins have a beautiful proof finish with frosted designs and mirrored backgrounds.
