    Lr103 reacted to Oldun in Yale of Beaufort - Queen's Beasts   
    Might as well learn some history while looking or collecting...
    of BeaufortEdit
    The Yale was a mythical beast, supposedly white and covered with gold spots and able to swivel each of its horns independently. It descends to the Queen through Henry VII, who inherited it from his mother, Lady Margaret Beaufort. The shield shows a portcullis surmounted by a royal crown. The portcullis (uncrowned) was a Beaufort badge, but was used both crowned and uncrowned by Henry VII.[14]

    Hi! I just found the design for the Yale of Beaufort. :-) I must say I really like the design! It's my favourite after the dragon and the griffin. What do you think?
  3. Thanks
    Lr103 got a reaction from Wahak in Queens beast griffin gold proof coins   
    I agree, it is a great design!  However there is no way to know what the Royal Mint will ultimately do in terms of their release schedule, that's just my best guess.

    In 2017 & 2018 we created some "100g BYB Bars" and they proved to be very popular!
    The 2019 editions are now available to pre-order. 
    I have a prototype bar to share with you all here - we have upgraded out stamps to include an all in one "2019" stamp which really tidy's up the bar!
    Each bar has been hand poured and will contain a minimum of 100g 999 fine silver. Each bar will be hallmarked by the Edinburgh Assay Office with a 2mm "feature" hallmark (bigger than usual). Each bar will also be "antiqued" or blackened to highlight the letters, numbers and Hallmark. Each bar will also be serialised in the format "001 to 050".
    Maximum mintage for 2019 will be 50 bars
    Release date
    They will be made in batches over the course of the year. 
    The estimate for the first batch will be around the end of March.
    One Bar: £75 including postage to the UK.
    Two bars: £145 including postage to the UK.

    Also got my NGC slabs back today from @Numistacker. Lets skip the slight disappointments (MS68s ...) and focus on the bullion winners 😊.
    Thats the Unicorn taken care of, but I still have plenty other bullion Queens Beasts designs  to get as MS70  Its  a long road and quite humbling - especially with the next Beast arriving soon 😆

    Here they are with a few other graded coins I already had in hand. Still absolutely loving my Gold Dragon & Phoenix!

    Two items arrived today 5x Britannia 10 oz silver bars from @SilverStan and 2x 5 oz Terracotta Army from @MrScottsdale. Almost completed stack of 10 x Britannia 10 oz silver bars. Needed another lady in my life (apart from my wife) and the contest was between Lady Pamp Suisse Fortuna and Lady Britannia. Lady Britannia has won . @MrScottsdale new forum just wanted to say his packaging / communication was excellent (same SilverStan) and I left positive feedback for both.

    Pembrokeshire! I think it is often overlooked by folks as most I know who have gone on holiday to Wales have gone to North Wales (Snowdonia usually) and thats it. Pembrokeshire features some breathtakingly beautiful rugged coastline and tends to be quite quiet most of the year outside of the summer months. I do my best to get out there once a year for a week or two usually either in October or March. The weather can be iffy but that is par for the course in most of the UK. My favourite place in Pembrokeshire is St David's Head. If you are in to walks there is a pretty unbeatable one for breathtaking scenery that starts and ends at Whitesands Bay and basically takes you around the prominent mountain or hill there - Carn Llidi. Here are a few pictures from the last time I did that walk.

    Received these from metal market Europe (Poland) today, I have to say I'm impressed.
    3 x tenth Platy Brits, came supplied in qua drum type capsule.
    10. X 2019 silver Brits, came in tube and packed with peanuts to stop rattling. Quality appears better for these than orevious efforts.
    delivery was via UPS for about £8 and I live in a generally high shipping cost area. General prices for bullion are good , decent stock and can pay in sterling.
    Sorry about the picture quality.

    Lr103 got a reaction from augur in Queens beast griffin gold proof coins   
    They seem to have settled into releasing 2 proofs per year, and the corresponding bullion at the same time (except the 10oz silver and 1oz platinum coming with a 6 month lag). I would assume one will come out probably in the next month and the other around September. 
    If this continues, the Griffin would need to be last, as the bullion is already out, so it must be a proof-only release unless they decide to go back out of sequence with proof and bullion releases.
