The one ounce gold Falcon is a continuation of the heraldic beasts that are present during the Monarch's coronation, this is the sixth coin in the series. The Falcon symbolises single-minded determination. This gold coin is the Quarter Ounce (0.25 t/oz) version of the larger one ounce gold coin.
The Falcon was chosen by the Plantagenet King Edward III, this was to embody his love of hawking, it was then used as the Royal Badge of his grandson Richard II. The falcon sits upon a golden fetterlock, which is open slightly, this is to symbolise Edward’s claim to the throne. In later times, the House of York and Lancaster were unified by Henry VII, which lead to the Falcon being adopted by him. The Falcon became an established royal best by the reign of Elizabeth, which is also said to be her favourite badge.
