There are a total of 10 designs available in the Queen’s Beast Series from the Royal Mint of England. The designs reflect the most important heraldic beasts in the history of the British Royal Arms, each of which was depicted in the form of a statue at the 1953 coronation ceremony of Queen Elizabeth II.
Those heraldic beast statues remain intact today. The wooden statues replicating the beasts are housed in Canada and the stone statues are housed in England. The first design was that of the Lion of England, the kingdom’s most coveted heraldic beast. The Yale of Beaufort comes from the reign of King Henry VII.
On the reverse of 2019 1 oz Proof Gold British Queen’s Beast Yale of Beaufort Coins is the design of the seal. The mythical Yale stands supporting the shield in a regal stance. The Yale is a beast common from European mythology and often features with the tusks of a boar and horns on its head.
The Yale of Beaufort came into the British Royal Arms during the reign of King Henry VII, the first ruler in the House of Tudor. Henry was the only child of Lady Margaret Beaufort, daughter of the Duke of Somerset, John Beaufort.
