Great Britain's Royal Mint began the Queen's Beasts series in 2016 to celebrate the ten creatures that appeared in statue form at the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, who is now the longest serving monarch in British history. The series captured the imaginations of collectors, and each new issue has proven the continued strength of the series. Struck from 2 oz of .9999 fine silver, this Yale of Beaufort is the seventh issue in the collection and is sure to attract new and old Queen's Beasts fans alike.
Powerful Yale of Beaufort Design by Jody Clark
Jody Clark created the designs for both faces of this coin. On the obverse is a right-side portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. The monarch dons her Royal Diamond Diadem, the crown that she traditionally wears to the State Opening of Parliament. Rim inscriptions offer her name and title, "ELIZABETH II D G REG F D" (Elizabeth II, by the Grace of God, Queen, Defender of the Faith), and the coin's face value, "5 POUNDS."
The beast for which the coin is named features on the reverse. It has the body of a goat, the tusks of a boar, the tail of an elephant, and two horns that move independently of one another. It balances a shield on which are the golden portcullis of Henry VII and the quarters of his mother's, Lady Margaret Beaufort's, arms. "YALE OF BEAUFORT" starts a string of rim inscriptions that also includes "2 OZ FINE SILVER 999.9" and "2019."
