Why buy this £25 Great Britain 2019 1/4 oz Gold Queen's Beasts The Yale of Beaufort?
The Queen's Beasts series began in 2016. Its aim was, and is, to celebrate each of the ten creatures that were present as stone figures at the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. The series has become a favorite among collectors for its unique designs, as well as the diversity that it offers within a relatively short period of time. This seventh issue in the series continues the tradition with the Yale of Beaufort. The coin was struck at Britain's Royal Mint from a quarter ounce of .9999 fine gold.
Exquisite Yale of Beaufort Design
Both faces of this coin bear the designs of Jody Clark. He depicts the monarch wearing her Royal Diamond Diadem at the center of the obverse. Many are familiar with this crown because it is the one that she wears for the State Opening of Parliament. Her name and abbreviated title, "ELIZABETH II D G REG F D" (Elizabeth II, by the Grace of God, Queen, Defender of the Faith) join the coin's face value, "25 POUNDS," on the rim.
The Yale of Beaufort stands proudly at the center of the reverse. Depicted at an angle, the creature has the body of a goat, the tail of an elephant, the tusks of a boar, and two horns, which the creature can move independently. At the bottom of the design is a shield, which combines Lady Margaret Beaufort's quarters and Henry VII's golden portcullis. The yale symbolized Margaret. The name of the coin, "YALE OF BEAUFORT," joins inscriptions that provide essential information about the coin. These additional inscriptions read, "1 OZ FINE GOLD 999.9" and "2019."
