The Falcon of the Plantagenets is the sixth release in the Queen’s Beasts collection, by The Royal Mint. This is a brand-new bullion finish coin, issued by the Royal Mint. The coins are issued without expensive presentation boxes to maximize the amount of silver for your money. Coins will be packaged loose for small quantities and orders of 10 or more may come in Royal Mint tubes, ans monster boxes contain quantities of 200 coins.
This coin is struck in 999.9 fine silver and has a face value of £5. The significance of the face value is that it qualifies this coin as legal tender, and therefore is free from Capital Gains Tax.
Both the obverse and reverse have been designed by Jody Clark offering a lovely consistency rarely seen on coins which useually feature separate designers for each face.
The reverse features the beautiful depiction of the Falcon, perched on a shield with another Falcon clutching a fetterlock. The words ‘FALCON OF THE PLANTAGENETS-2oz-FINE SILVER-9999-2019’ surround the main image.
The obverse is the fifth portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, which is shared with all the current crop of UK coins.
A fantastic choice for both investors and coin collecting enthusiasts. The Silver Falcon appeals as a silver investment as it provides great value as a 2oz coin, is Capital Gains Tax free due to its legal tender status and is highly liquid. Buyers can expect accelerated upside potential with the coins being limited in issue and part of a ten part collection.
