The Yale of Beaufort comes to the Royal Arms of Queen Elizabeth II courtesy of the mother of the first monarch from the House of Tudor. King Henry VII claimed the English throne in 1485 as his forces defeated Richard III on the field of battle to end the Wars of the Roses. Henry VII came from the House of Tudor on his father’s side.
Henry VII’s mother was Lady Margaret Beaufort, the only daughter and heiress of John Beaufort, Duke of Somerset. Lady Margaret was a pivotal figure throughout the Wars of the Roses and bore her only child, Henry VII, from her second marriage to Edmund Tudor. She was not only the mother of King Henry VII, but the grandmother of the famed King Henry VIII.
The reverse face of 2019 1 oz British Gold Queen’s Beast Yale of Beaufort Coins includes the symbol of Lady Margaret Beaufort. The Yale is a mythical beast that is most commonly depicted as an antelope or goat in British mythical history. The design used on these coins includes the blue-and-white quarters of Lady Margaret and the golden portcullis at the center. The latter was a badge used by her son, King Henry VII.
In an important note to this series, the golden portcullis is a part of the arms of the Westminster City Council. The city is home to Westminster Abbey, the location of Queen Elizabeth II’s 1953 coronation.
On the obverse of 2019 British Gold Queen’s Beast Yale of Beaufort Coins is the image of Her Majesty in right-profile relief. Wearing the Royal Diadem crown on her head, Elizabeth II’s fifth-generation portrait showcases her face at the age of 89.
The 2019 Gold Queen’s Beast Yale of Beaufort is available to you in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. Coins in this series ship individually in protective packaging, tubes of 10 coins, or Monster Boxes of 100 coins with 10 tubes in the box.
