About 1/4 oz Tudor Beast Beaufort
The inspiration for the design created by David Lawrence comes from the statue of the Yale which lines the Moat Bridge of Hampton Court Palace, (alongside the other 9 statues the Seymour Panther, the Bull of Clarence, the Tudor Dragon, the Greyhound of Richmond, the Royal Dragon, the Lion of England, the Seymour Unicorn, the Queen’s Panther and the Queen’s Lion). The beasts symbolise the legitimacy of the king’s rule by portraying his regal ancestry and are the protectors who guard Hampton Court Palace.
The Yale is very similar to a goat but has the tusks of a wild boar and the tail of a lion. Here, the peculiar creature bears the shield with the arms of Jane Seymour, Henry VIII’s third wife.
