2019 Queen's Beasts Falcon Of The Plantagenets Five Pound Crown Brilliant Uncirculated Coin In Folder

UK19QFBU 2019 Queen's Beasts Falcon Of The Plantagenets £5 Crown Brilliant Uncirculated In Folder Packaging
from
£16.00
The sixth release in the Royal Mint's popular Queen's Beasts coin series is the Brilliant Uncirculated Falcon of the Plantagenets £5 coin. The Queen's Beasts are a set of ten statues guarding the entrance to Westminster Abbey which were created for the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953. James Woodford RA was responsible for the design of each statue, and engraver Jody Clark is responsible for the modern interpretation of the reverse which shows the falcon in all its glory. The falcon was first used by King Edward III in the 14th century, but the shield in which the falcon is clutching on this coin represents the personal badge of King Edward IV. Clark has also designed the obverse of this UK coin, which depicts the official fifth coinage portrait of The Queen. The coin has a diameter of 38.61 millimetres, weighs 28.28 grams and is struck in cupro-nickel to a high BUnc standard. For added protection, the coin is housed in a capsule attached to a limited edition slipcase, full of informative text and pictures.
