The Royal Mint is excited to introduce a new gold coin to The Queen’s Beasts Collection.

The coin design is inspired by ancient symbols of power and identity, the range brings to life the ten imposing statues that lined the entrance to Westminster Abbey in 1953 at the coronation of Her Majesty The Queen.

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. It descends to The Queen through Henry VII, who inherited it from his mother, Lady Margaret Beaufort, who went on to play a central role in the Wars of the Roses. Her position as matriarch of the Tudor dynasty gave the yale prestige and symbolic meaning.

This gold coin from The Queen’s Beasts Collection is also available as a 1/4 oz gold edition and a 2 oz silver edition.
