Cheers, been hoping to find one. Victoria has a crown on the obverse so it's 1850 to 1880. Would have been an expensive trip to the beach back then!

Been pretty busy lately but managed to sneak out for a few hunts, got my boat back on the water so I'll be researching some locations accessible from the water.

]The coins are in good condition, specially the silver. Did you notice some gold exploration is starting around Beaconsfield?

They said 'south of Devonport' but it's actually near Holwell in the Dazzler ranges.
Could be copper not gold, could be mining the shareholders or it could even be gold.

Interesting the Mount Read Volcanics goes as far east as Beaconsfield? Mount Read was a massive volcano that erupted under the sea and produced most of Tassies mineral deposits.

Had a good day on the beach with the little niece and nephew. The medal was given to female relatives of WW2 servicemen and the ring is 9ct with tiny diamonds, but rather fugly. Got a few coins too but they went straight to the kids pockets!
