  • Description:

    The 2019 Queen’s Beasts 1/4 oz. Gold Bullion Falcon of the Plantagenets coin is a prominent release in the prestigious Queen's Beasts series by The Royal Mint. This series draws inspiration from the heraldic statues that stood guard at the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, each representing various strands of royal ancestry. The Falcon of the Plantagenets, with its association to Edward III and a symbol of kingship and continuity in England, embodies a significant historical and cultural emblem from Britain's medieval past.

    Designed by Jody Clark, the Falcon of the Plantagenets coin features a detailed depiction of a falcon clutching a shield, which displays the traditional badge of the House of Plantagenet. This badge illustrates an open fetterlock and an enclosed golden falcon, symbolizing the house’s claim to the throne and its ruling authority. The artwork captures the falcon in an assertive and dominant pose, reflecting the power and regality that the bird represents in heraldry. The obverse of the coin continues with Jody Clark’s depiction of Queen Elizabeth II, linking the coin’s design directly to the current monarchy and providing a continuity of royal representation.

    This gold bullion coin is minted from pure 999.9 fine gold, ensuring its appeal to both investors and collectors who prioritize the quality and purity of precious metals. Issued in Brilliant Uncirculated condition, the coin retains its initial luster and detailed sharpness, free from the usual wear and tear of circulated coins. This pristine condition is essential for maintaining the coin’s aesthetic and numismatic value.

    The Royal Mint does not often release exact mintage numbers for each coin in the Queen’s Beasts series immediately, adding a layer of rarity and exclusivity to the Falcon of the Plantagenets. This scarcity, combined with the coin’s historical and aesthetic appeal, makes it a coveted item among collectors and investors alike, often appreciating in value over time.

    Overall, the 2019 Queen’s Beasts 1/4 oz. Gold Bullion Falcon of the Plantagenets coin stands as a significant collectible that merges the art of numismatics with the grandeur of British heraldry. It is not only a tribute to the medieval symbols of England but also a reflection of the ongoing legacy of the British monarchy. Collectors and investors who hold this coin own a piece of regal history, embodied in the majestic form of the falcon, a timeless symbol of authority and nobility in the British royal heraldry.
