2oz Silver Tudor Beasts Yale of Beaufort Coin
Incl. £10.54 VAT
2023 Tudor Beast Yale of Beaufort 2oz Silver Coin
This is a brand new 2oz silver bullion coin. Produced by the Royal Mint, this is the second issue of a 10-coin collectible series of Tudor Beasts coins. These 2oz silver coins are the same diameter as popular 1oz silver coins, but twice the thickness. This makes them not only satisfyingly heavy for their diameter, but also easy to store and stack.
After the huge success of the Queen’s Beasts series of coins, these Tudor Beasts coins commemorate the 10 heraldic beasts which line the Hampton Court Palace Moat bridge. These statues were created to celebrate the marriage of Henry VIII to Jane Seymour, representing the might of the Tudor dynasty.
Each coin is minted to 999.9 purity silver, containing 2 troy ounces of 24-carat silver. Coins will arrive in official tubes for orders in multiples of ten. Like the other 2oz gold coins in the series, the Yale of Beaufort coin possesses a face value of £5, qualifying the coin as legal tender – meaning any profits made when selling the coins in the future are completely free from Capital Gains Tax. The Royal Mint has produced these coins to bullion finish, deeming them ideal for investment due to their lower production cost.
Yale of Beaufort Tudor Beast
This second issue of the 10-coin series features the mythical Yale beast, popularised by the Beaufort family during the 1400s. Like many of the heraldic beasts, the Yale is commonly described as a mix of various real animals. The Yale is known as being goat-like, the size of a horse and with an elephant-like tail. Most recognisable are the long, serrated horns which are moveable.
It’s use within the Royal Family started as early as 1485 and came to represent proud defence.
The reverse of the coin features the impressive beast, with an animated chainlink background. This backdrop acts not only as a visual addition but also an anti-forgery detail.
The obverse of the coin bears the fifth portrait of Queen Elizabeth II on the new guilloché design.
Our Expert Opinion
Most gold & silver enthusiasts will know that the previous Queen’s Beasts series of coins sold out quickly, with secondary premiums rising significantly to reflect their scarcity.
We recommend collectors and investors buy Tudor Beasts quickly after their release as introductory premiums are low, before supplies run out.
Similar to the mass-produced silver Britannias, all the Tudor beasts coins are also Capital gains Tax free due to having legal tender status.
