First coin is Sassanid empire (I think that both of your pics are upside down).
Second coin looks like Western Satraps (pic #1 is sideways).
Sorry but without clearer pics, I can't provide a more precise attribution--maybe others here can. I'm going to recommend that this post be moved to the medieval/ancients area.

Echizento may be able to verify, but I suspect the Sassanian here is either a Hormazd IV or a Hunnic imitation of one of his.

For comparison here's a Hormazd IV:

Here's a Hunnic imitation:

I wish there was a bit more detail to the crown, but I agree it is Hormizd IV.

The second coin I believe is of the Western Satrap Rudrasena I, though with a a clear readable legend I'm not 100% sure.
