This is the sixth issue in the Queen's Beasts base metal series and features the Yale of Beaufort. Previously only struck in precious metals, The Queen’s Beasts are now available also in cupronickel Brilliant Uncirculated quality.

66 years ago the country witnessed the coronation of Her Majesty The Queen. Standing guard outside Westminster Abbey were ten statues of heraldic beasts, imposing symbols of royal authority. The Queen’s Beasts Collection from The Royal Mint celebrates each of these creatures in turn.

The Yale descends to The Queen through Henry VII, who inherited the beast from his mother, Lady Margaret Beaufort, who had played a role in the Wars of the Roses. Her position as matriarch of the Tudor dynasty gave the Yale prestige and symbolic meaning. The Yale is a mythical beast, described as the size of a hippopotamus with the tail of an elephant, the jaws of a boar and of a black or tawny color and has the ability to swivel each of its horns independently to use as a prominent weapon.

Each coin is presented in packaging that has been specially designed for these editions colourful, informative fold-out wallets that display the coins and capture the imagination.
