The bottom is a common tourist replica of an Athens tetradrachm; they show up regularly.

Top purports to be from Metapontion, I would be highly suspect of that one as well.

Yep, the bottom one is a Reader's Digest replica; the "Edvard munch eyes" on the poor owl are a giveaway. We see them all the time, here on the forum. Example with good pics.
