The Plantagenets produced 14 kings who sat on the throne of England and six of those individuals came from the Plantagenet cadet houses in England: House of York and House of Lancaster.

In this design, the Queen wears the Royal Diadem crown, a ceremonial crown not worn with great frequency.
The reverse side of 2020 Silver British Queen’s Beast Falcon Coins features the design based upon the personal seal of King Edward III. The king was a fan of hawking and chose the white falcon as his personal symbol. It was used by many of his sons, as well as his great-great-grandson King Edward IV. The White Falcon is depicted twice in the design. There is a large falcon supporting a heraldic shield, upon which there is a second falcon clutching an open fetterlock.
