I bought these two coins from a coin magazine (maybe Coin World) about 40 years ago. They were inexpensive, but I think the ad said that they made of silver. I thought they looked cool, so I bought them.

Does anyone know their origin, age, composition, value (if any), etc.?

The coin with the concentric circle design weighs 3.56 grams, and the other oblong-shaped coin weighs 3.44 grams.

My Lebanese friend looked at the coins and can read the words "Shah" and "Mohammed" on at least one of the coins, and says the alphabet looks Persian to him.

Please let me know your thoughts. Thank you.
