The reverse of 2019 5 oz Proof Silver British Queen’s Beast Falcon coins feature the heraldic symbols of King Edward III. A great lover of falconry and hawking, Edward III chose the white falcon in his personal seal. The King ruled over England through the Hundred Years’ War and signed a successful treaty to end the war that was beneficial to England.
In the seal of King Edward III, a white falcon supports a shield that has another white falcon on the shield’s surface. This falcon holds a fetterlock. While King Edward III and the current Queen Elizabeth II use an open fetterlock as a symbol of their rightful claims to the throne in their day, Edward III’s younger sons used a closed fetterlock to symbolize they made no claim to the throne.
On the obverse of 2019 5 oz Proof Silver British Queen’s Beast Falcon of the Plantagenets Coins is the image of Queen Elizabeth II. The longest-reigning monarch in the history of England, she has been on the throne since 1952.
These 2019 5 oz Proof Silver British Queen’s Beast Coins come with a black display case from the Royal Mint, a Certificate of Authenticity, and a booklet with more information on the White Falcon of Edward III.
