@dman, using my handy-dandy coinoscope app, I'm pretty sure that the righthand coin is from Vietnam. Here is a numista link to a similar-looking coin.

The left one is from Korea.
Based on the information provided at
http://primaltrek.com/koreancoins.html
I would call it as produced by Military Training Command at
1857.
This article also explains the meaning of the other two characters.

Thanks Spence for the help. I download the Coinoscope app and it really surprised how well it worked!

Thanks Arok for your help as well. I was not seeing much online about Korean coins. The link you provided was very informative!

This is correct except for the date. Dang Il Jeon (AKA 1 Mun) cash coins minted by the Military Training Command started in 1828. This is according to Korean numismatic sources here in Korea. Not sure why Primaltrek has it at 1857, but its incorrect. There are different years per the face value of the coin, but this one (a 1 Mun) was minted starting in 1828. It has a value of about $1~$3 nowadays.

Also note that they began minted them there at 1828, but these coins were produced well into the 1880s, so it could be a little older.

As for the Chinese coin it looks to be Song Dynasty? The characters seem to read Sheng Yuan Tong Boa, but I can't seem to find it in picture form.
