The House of Plantagenet ruled over England from 1154 to 1485. The royal line produced 14 kings of England, with six coming from the cadet houses of either the House of York or the House of Lancaster. King Henry II was the first king from the House of Plantagenet and King Richard III was the final king who was killed in battle at Bosworth Field. His death brought an end to the Wars of the Roses as well.
On the reverse side of 2020 1 oz Platinum British Queen’s Beast Falcon Coins is the image of the white falcon. Adopted first by King Edward III, the symbol was popularly used by his sons and is associated with his great-great-grandson King Edward IV. The design includes a falcon supporting the royal arms, which bears on its design a white falcon clutching an open fetterlock.
The obverse of 2020 Platinum British Queen’s Beast Falcon Coins includes the fifth-generation portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Designed in 2015 by Jody Clark, this right-profile portrait captures the Queen at age 89 wearing the Royal Diadem crown on her head.
