I can't help with the second coin, but here's a starting point for the first.
Princely states, Shah Alam II, AH 1192 ~ AD 1778.
This one is similar, but I believe yours is from a different mint: https://en.numista.com/catalogue/pieces131819.html

It is frustrating. I searched all over the site, still cannot find the exact match. Wish someone out there with deep knowledge in Princely State coins can pinpoint to me.

I revert to the coin shop to take a few photo of the edge. Hopefully can identify some clue as to the origin of the coin.







the weight is 11.8g

The shop owner tell me that the origin is Silk road. What is your take?

You could try looking at sites that specialise in Indian coins.

Google Lens is a great tool, too. I've used it to identify a number of Qin Dynasty coins that I had no luck with elsewhere.

I believe the sun-face indicates the first coin is from Indore. Something like this one on Numista.

As for your second piece, it's not a coin. It appears to be a piece of lead. Possibly a lead token from Britain or Europe. It may not be numismatic at all, but rather just a blob of lead that happens to be roundish in shape.

I agree that the second one looks like a lead seal. @coins, does it seem like it is made from lead?

@Spence, I have not much ideas. The stall owner is kind enough for me to take a photo of it.
