The 1 oz Yale of Beaufort gold coin is the 7th release in the 10-coin Queen’s Beasts series from The Royal Mint (UK).
Gold yale coins contain 1 troy oz of .9999 fine gold. These are sovereign coins fully backed by the British government.
The back of the coin features the long-horned beast, the Yale of Beaufort, along with the weight, purity and year-date.
The yale’s origins are traced to Lady Margaret Beaufort, mother of Henry VII – the first monarch of the House of Tudor.
An effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II adorns the front of the coin along with the face value of 100 pounds.
The Queen’s Beasts are inspired by centuries of history and royal heraldry. The ten coins depict the genealogy of Queen Elizabeth II, with each of the heraldic beasts symbolizing the various strands of The Queen’s royal ancestry.
The original beasts were a series of 6-foot tall statues that stood guard outside The Queen’s coronation ceremony in Westminster Abbey on June 2, 1953.
Today, they are re-imagined as beautiful, bullion coins.
Each proud beast was used as a heraldic badge by generations that came before Queen Elizabeth II. Centuries ago, these badges adorned the flags and shields of armies as they charged into battle — not only to identify each side but also to serve as a symbol of royal lineage and title.
About the Yale of Beaufort
The Yale is a mythical beast with characteristics of an antelope or goat, depending on the imagination of the artist and their desire to portray grace and elegance, or strength and determination. Strangely, it is said to have horns that can turn independently so in medieval illustrations it is often shown with horns pointing in different directions. The white and gold-spotted Yale of Beaufort has such horns along with the whiskers or ‘tushes’ of a boar.
The Yale of Beaufort was a symbol of Lady Margaret Beaufort, mother of Henry VII. The Yale of The Queen’s Beasts holds a shield with the blue and white quarters of Margaret’s arms but with a golden portcullis at the center, a badge used by Henry VII. The portcullis is also part of the arms of Westminster City Council, which is home to Westminster Abbey.

The Gold Britannia is an official bullion coin of the United Kingdom and contains 1 troy ounce of .9999 pure gold, making it IRA-eligible.
2019 Gold Britannia coins are legal tender and have a face value of £100 pounds. The gold content, weight, and purity of every Britannia coin are guaranteed by the British government.
The back of these 24K coins feature the iconic Britannia figure, the symbolic protector of the British Isles. She stands firm against the winds of a powerful gale, vigilantly watching over her homeland armed with her trident, shield and Corinthian helmet. She holds an olive branch as a symbol of peace in her left hand. An added detail that is often missed is the name Nathan, stamped in the bottom giving credit to its designer, Philip Nathan.
Since 2017, Britannia coins have a speckled radial sunburst in their design, giving them a striking look that is very difficult to counterfeit.
The front of the Gold Britannia coin features Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and face value.
The weight and strength of Gold Britannia coins are verified at the annual, centuries-old Trial of the Pyx where a jury of assayers ensure newly minted coins conform to required standards.
The Royal Mint has been striking coins for over 1,000 years. And the 2019 Gold Britannia continues the tradition. It takes its inspiration from ancient Britannia coins first struck by the Romans.
It was the practice of the Romans to personify continents and countries as female figures. And for the Province of Britannia (the Roman controlled regions of England, Scotland and Wales) they used the figure of Britannia. On coins of emperor Hadrian (117-138 AD) she is featured in classic flowing robes with a spear and shield, seated on rocky crags which probably provided the invaders’ first view of Britain.
Pictured below, early Britannia coins:
Early Britannia coins
After the Romans, she was brought back during the reign of Charles II, but as a maritime figure as the British Empire sought to assert its sovereignty over the seas. This is the inspiration behind the trident pictured in today’s design.
Gold Britannia coins draw from a deep historical heritage, and its .9999 purity, anti-counterfeiting feature, and reasonable premium over spot make it ideal for the modern precious metals investor now.
