At Queen Elizabeth II’s 1953 coronation, ten statues called The Queen’s Beasts stood guard at the entrance to Westminster Abbey. Each creature represented a strand of the young woman’s ancient royal heritage that passed to her on that historic day. In 2016, the Royal Mint reincarnated the ten royal guardians who stood guard that day in a beautiful new coin series called The Queen’s Beasts. Each new release explores one of these ten fantastical protectors and the centuries-old story they have to tell.
The seventh release in the Queen’s Beasts 10-coin series commemorates the regal Yale of Beaufort. The Yale was a mythical, antelope-like creature that was white with gold spots. It possessed the tusks of a boar and large horns that could swivel independently in any direction. The Yale passed to the Queen through Henry VII, who inherited it from his mother, Lady Margaret Beaufort. Each coin is intricately struck in 1 oz .9999 fine gold and bears a face value of 100 pounds backed by the British government.

The obverse displays coin artist Jody Clark’s effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, along with the legend “ELIZABETH II, D.G. REG. F.D., 100 POUNDS”, and the designer’s initials surrounding the image.
Designed by Royal Mint coin artist Jody Clark, the reverse features the Yale of Beaufort rearing up on its hind legs behind a shield. Its spots appear in relief, and its long, twisted horns are swiveled in opposite directions. The shield depicts a portcullis topped by a royal crown. A portcullis is a heavy, vertically-closing gate that fortified the entrances to many medieval castles. The coin’s weight, purity, year of issue, and “YALE OF BEAUFORT” encircle the image.

The Royal Mint of England offers these low-mintage gold coins with individual protective plastic capsules. This is the second year the Royal Mint has issued the Britannia coins in a low-mintage option with an oriental border design as a nod to its colonial history in the Far East.
The use of an oriental border design on these Gold Britannias is inspired by the British Trade Dollar issued by Royal Mint facilities in India and the Far East in the 19thcentury. Following the First and Second Opium Wars in China, in which the British were victorious, ports in China were forced open by the United Kingdom. To avoid the use of British colonial currency in these port cities, British Trade Dollars were issued that often featured Britannia and included an oriental border design.
