The first is a documented cast fake, similar to these.

@norran, first welcome to CCF. Second, with regard to your second piece, this does not appear to be coin, but rather a token. On the first image, I can make out the inscription OMNISPORTS and a stylized symbol (perhaps a trident). I can't quite make out the inscription on the other side, but the wavy-haired bust and two fish potentially point to this being an image of Neptune/Poseidon. Any chance of you posting an in-focus pic of that other side to help with making out the fine details?

I've seen them online described as "Vintage Club Med Solid Brass Greek Poseidon Water Omnisports Medallion Pendant" - that's a mouthful.

Well done Bob. The other inscription is CLUB MEDITERRANEE, with the letter M looking like waves. An interesting piece, although the OP's example may have spent some time in the water.

Thanks very much everyone !
Spence, unfortunately these are my best photos after a few trials
Bob, so that first token is a fake, not worth anything ?

Sadly that's right...at best it's certainly not worth more than a few dollars as a curio, imo.
