This beautiful quarter ounce gold coin is part of a series of ten coins that feature the "Queen's Beasts". The Queen's Beasts are ten statues which stood guard for the Queen's Coronation, sculpted by James Woodford RA in 1953. The Queen's Beasts are still standing, but are currently housed at the Canadian Museum of History in Quebec, Canada. Stone replicas of the statues can be found at Kew gardens.

This 2019 coin features the Yale Of Beaufort. A 'Yale' is a mythical beast found in European mythology and the imagery was used by the Beaufort family during the fifteenth century. The black-coloured Yale (aka Centicore) has long and flexible horns, which can be moved independently of each other. It is the size of a horse with an elephants tail. The Yale symbolises a proud defence.

The coin itself is fine Gold and weighs one quarter ounce (7.81grams) at 999.9 purity (24-carat).

This coin has a face value of £25 and just like other British currency, this coin will be exempt of any Capital Gains Tax when you are ready to sell.

A note to collectors - the Queens Beast series of coins will be issued one-by-one by the Royal Mint up until 2020. If you intend to collect this range, we will not have access to these earlier coins in 2020 as they are limited edition, so you will need to purchase them individually as they become available (roughly every six months).
