2023 2 oz Silver British Tudor Beasts Bullion Coin – The Yale of Beaufort – Limit 10 Per Customer
The 2023 Tudor Beasts 2 oz Silver Bullion Coin – The Yale of Beaufort is among the earliest releases of the latest series by the British Royal Mint. This new addition to The Royal Mint’s bullion range takes its inspiration from hundreds of years of royal heraldry.
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 centre, a badge used by Henry VII. The portcullis is also part of the arms of Westminster City Council, which is home to Westminster Abbey where the coronation took place in 1953.
The obverse features the 5th definitive coinage Portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, surrounded by the text “ELIZABETH II • D • G • REG • F • D • 5 POUNDS”. DG REG FD is an abbreviation of the latin “Dei Gratia Regina Fidei Defensor” meaning; “Grace of God, Queen, Defender of the Faith” and is a form of the Style of the British sovereign of Queen Elizabeth II common on coins of the Pound Sterling. The initials of the artist Jody Clark appear just below the portrait.
The reverse features a stylized rendition of the Yale of Beaufort surrounded by the text “YALE OF BEAUFORT • 2 oz FINE SILVER • 999.9 • 2023”.

The Tudor Beasts
When the House of Lancaster overcame the House of York following the Wars of the Roses, a formidable dynasty was born. Henry VII, following his matrimonial union with Elizabeth of York to unite the houses, was keen to emphasise the legitimacy of his reign. He looked to the medieval tradition of heraldry to display motifs and symbols wherever possible, reinforcing his rightful position on the English throne to his subjects as well as rival claimants. Henry VIII continued his father’s commitment to legitimising the Tudor dynasty. One such place that heavily features heraldic symbols is Hampton Court Palace – one of the king’s most famous residences and a place he used for pleasure and celebration. Ten stone beasts line the Moat Bridge, representing the lineage of Henry VIII and his third wife, Jane Seymour. Consisting of real beasts and mythical creatures, we are honouring these heraldic symbols of one of the nation’s most powerful dynasties with The Royal Tudor Beasts Collection.
