Why order this £100 Great Britain 2020 1 oz Platinum Queen's Beasts - Falcon of Plantagenets?
The brief but exciting tradition of the Queen's Beasts Series continues with this 1 oz Platinum Falcon of the Plantagenets. When complete, the series will consist of one coin for each of the ten creatures that was present in stone form for the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. This Falcon came down to Elizabeth II from Edward III, who chose it due to his fondness for hawking. The falcon represents single minded determination. This piece was struck at the British Royal Mint on a 1 oz planchet of .9995 fine platinum.
Striking Falcon of the Plantagenets Design by Jody Clark
Both faces of this coin were designed by Royal Mint designer Jody Clark. The reigning British monarch features on the obverse. She is shown in right-side profile wearing earrings and her Royal Diamond Diadem. Her name and her title, which is abbreviated in Latin, "ELIZABETH II D G REG F D," are inscribed along the rim, as is the face value of the coin, "100 POUNDS."
The reverse features the creature for which the coin is named. Clark shows the falcon perched upon its shield. It appears powerful with its wings spread and its head facing left. Its name, "FALCON OF THE PLANTAGENETS," is inscribed on the rim frame. Other inscriptions on that frame offer the coin's weight and purity, "1 OZ FINE PLATINUM 999.5," and its date, "2020."
