The Yale of Beaufort is one of the few mythical beasts to feature in the heraldry of the British Royal Arms. Alongside the dragon, unicorn, and Griffin, the Yale stands as a powerful symbol from heraldry. With the body of a goat or antelope, a Yale is often depicted with horns on its head and the tusks of a boar on its snout.
Traditionally, the manner in which an artist depicts the Yale determines its symbolism in a heraldic pose. For example, it can be crafted to reflect grace and elegance or strength and determination. The Yale of Beaufort is named for Lady Margaret Beaufort, whose son Henry would become King Henry VII in 1485 and found the Tudor dynasty on the throne.
On the reverse of 2019 2 oz British Silver Queens Beast Yale of Beaufort coins is Lady Margarets shield. Handed down to her by her father, John Beaufort, Duke of Somerset, the shield features a crown and portcullis, the latter symbol being a badge used by King Henry VII. The Yale stands powerfully behind the shield with long, winding horns.
The obverse of 2019 British Silver Yale of Beaufort Coins includes the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. With the guilloche background element behind her, the Queens fifth-generation effigy captures her appearance at the age of 89 wearing the Royal Diadem crown.
