Old Coin For Austalia

Hello my name is Jordan. I'm 13 and I've been metal detecting for 3 years now and this is my 1881 coin found in Camden, NSW. This is now my best find but not my oldest, my oldest is an 1879 sixpence but today I found a better coin.

I was almost going to give up on this coin but I found it. It was in between two holes I dug but I was going to leave it but then I just stuck my pinpointer back in incase and there it was. And I also found a 1959 half penny and a 1909 GB penny within 5m of this silver coin, And this coin is valued at over $150 so I'm very happy with my find! Thank you!
