The Yale of Beaufort comes to the Royal Arms through the first Tudor monarch in English history, King Henry VII. King Henry VII carried the Yale of Beaufort from the family of his mother, Lady Margaret Beaufort. The Yale is one of the many mythical beasts to feature in the Royal Arms.
A Yale is a cross between an antelope and goat in most cultural depictions. Popular in the heraldry of many European nations during the Middle Ages and Renaissance, the Yale is often depicted with the body of a goat, twisted horns on its head, and the tusks of a boar in its mouth.
Queen Elizabeth II features on the obverse of all 2020 1 oz British Platinum Queen’s Beast Yale Coins.

She wears the George IV State Diadem Crown, a crown that has a stunning 1,333 diamonds in its design weighing more than 300 karats in total.
