Hi Philip. Unfortunately Museum Victoria can't provide valuations or conservation advice. For information on obtaining valuations please see our Question of the Week http://museumvictoria.com.au/discoverycentre/discovery-centre-news/coin-valuations/
For conservation advice (or even whether it is worth repairing) you may wish to contact a horologist or try the website of the Australian Centre for the Conservation of Cultural Materials to search for an appropriate conservator http://www.aiccm.org.au/index.php?option=com_civicrm&view=Profiles&layout=search&Itemid=88
