The Mythical Yale, Regal in Silver
66 years ago at the coronation, ten statues guarded the entrance to Westminster Abbey – The Queen’s Beasts – manifestations of the strands of ancestry brought together in a young woman about to be crowned queen. Now they return to a beautiful series of coins and The Queen’s Beasts Collection from The Royal Mint celebrates each of these heraldic beasts in turn. For the sixth release in the series, the Yale of Beaufort takes centre stage. Mythical and regal, it descends to Her Majesty The Queen through Henry VII, who inherited it from his mother, Lady Margaret Beaufort, matriarch of the Tudor dynasty.
The Yale of Beaufort coin follows the Red Dragon of Wales and the Black Bull of Clarence which were released in 2018, the year of the 65th anniversary of the coronation of The Queen.
