Default Looks like my brass badge

Hi, the Advance Australia badge in the centre of the Jubilee patch looks brass to me, certainly not woven bullion. Here is a scan of my badge that I have had for years and long wondered about. I previously thought it might be unofficial Boer War, but it now appears much earlier and distinctive to Sth Australia. Sorry the scan is small, hope it is legible.
The Advance Australia motto was used by the Australian Natives Association who were so strong in SA that they provided a company of the Adelaide Rifles with their own coat-of-arms badge (different to this pattern and with ANA in the centre).
