After the success of the 4 coins launched to date, the 5th coin in The Queen's Beasts Collection includes the Falcon of the Plantagenets. The falcon and fetterlock portrayed here is a sign of Edward IV who claimed the throne throughout the Wars of the Roses.

The Falcon passed to The Queen from the Plantagenet king Edward III. He picked the sign to embody his love of hawking however it is likewise closely connected with his great-great-grandson, Edward IV. The white Falcon at The Queen's crowning held a guard with a badge portraying a 2nd white falcon within an open golden 'fetterlock' or padlock.

The falcon and the fetterlock were popular symbols in the Houses of both York and Lancaster, as they had actually come down from Edward III's younger sons John of Gaunt and Edmund of Langley. Edward IV provided his youngest boy, Richard, the badge of a white falcon within an open fetterlock-- the lock Edward required to take the throne.
