G'day silver. Yes, have found heaps. I've got jars etc, every where. Mostly found in the G.T. while prospecting. The oldest is a 1757 Hamburg schilling, I found at Havelock. I'll post photos of the interesting ones as they turn up. wiley.

1631537480_gfmt6373_1.jpg Here's a button/ medallion I found near Bendigo. So I'll use a bit of poetic licence, and a lot of imagination here. Here's my take on it. The Chinese name for Bendigo was, Dai Gum San, which means, Big Gold Mountain. Also, Bendigo's huge Chinese dragon is named, Dai Gum Loong, which means, Big Gold Dragon. Does anyone know the story/history on this item. It's 40mm across and looks very old. wiley.
