Anything of any value in the "hoard"? Looks like a burglar's stash.

Looks like someone's cast off jar was knicked and buried.
Broken chain, crucifix, bangles that had some gold inlay <1g I'd say, small asian coins and 3 aus half pennies and a cameo brooch

Definitely an Asian coin - i had hoped it was a holey dollar when i spotted it in the mix but alas it wasn't to be.
The initial excitement of finding a stash was dampened by the lack of value within -the best bit for me was the 1921 hapenny

One was found with a detector along the banks of the Shoalhaven River Nowra in the 1990's

I understand that one was found with an XTerra 705 at Hill End, back in 2010:
