Lady Margaret was a major player in the Wars of the Roses in England. She backed the forces trying to remove the House of York from power. Margaret’s son from her second marriage, Henry, won the Battle of Bosworth Field in 1485 and ascended to the throne of England as King Henry VII. He was the founder of the House of Tudor and used his mother’s shield in his personal seal.
On the reverse of 2019 Proof Silver British Queen’s Beast Yale of Beaufort Coins, you’ll find the shield of Lady Margaret and Henry VII. The design includes a shield with the Yale behind it. The mythical beast was associated with regal power and is depicted as a goat or antelope. The Yale typically has the tusks of a boar and twisted horns on its head.
