I got both of these from my LCS's foreign bins a few days ago.
The square one has what looks like an Asian stylized dog or lion, but I have no clue about the language.
The other one....is it even a coin? It looks like it could be some kind of mechanical part to a toy or something. The non-indented side is the image of an old-fashioned rotary phone face. It's exactly the same diameter as a US small cent.

Square coin is

Burma 10 pyas, 1963 ( if I read the date right ), mintage 10,750,000, Krause KM#34.

This coin was minted from 1952 to 1965, with large gaps in the sequence. The second picture is upside down.

Johnny Depp wears a similar Burma coin in his "Pirates of the Caribbean" films:
