The obverse side of the 2020 1 oz Platinum British Queen’s Beast Yale Coin features the fifth-generation portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. The longest-reigning British monarch, Elizabeth II is featured here at the age of 89 in a right-profile portrait in which she wears the George IV State Diadem Crown on her head. The background field has a guilloche design element that deflects light in unique patterns.
On the reverse face of 2020 Platinum British Queen’s Beast Yale Coins is the Yale supporting the shield of King Henry VII with the personal symbols from the badge of his mother, Lady Margaret Beaufort. Lady Margaret was an influential figure in England during and after the Wars of the Roses, passing on the Yale to her son as King of England. This shield features a crown above the portcullis, the personal badge of Henry VII.
