Isle of Man 1-POUND (KM-new) Peregrine Falcon + Raven

In 2017, Isle of Man issued a new series of common circulating coins, most featuring animals.

The Isle of Man features a healthy population of Peregrine falcons, and one appears on the island's coat of arms. In 1405, King Henry IV gave the Isle of Man to Sir John Stanley on condition that he paid homage and gave two falcons to him and to every future King of England on his Coronation Day. The presentation of two falcons continued up to the Coronation of George IV in 1822.

I am not sure what the significance of the raven is, other than it being an awesome bird.
