The Royal Mint is excited to add a new bullion coin to The Queen’s Beasts Collection. Inspired by ancient symbols of power and identity, the range brings to life the ten imposing statues that lined the entrance to Westminster Abbey in 1953 at the coronation of Her Majesty The Queen.
Throughout medieval England, falcons were used for hunting. Knowledge of falconry was a skill that belonged to the chivalrous and a means to display rank. In heraldry, the falcon represents single-minded determination. It was first used in England by Edward III and would pass to his great-great-grandson Edward IV.
Following the success of previous coins in the collection, the latest release features another original portrait by Royal Mint coin designer, Jody Clark. Perched on top of a shield, the falcon symbolizes suitability for high office. This bullion coin from The Queen’s Beasts Collection is also available as a gold one ounce and a silver two-ounce edition.
