That's early Arabic script in the top pic, so it's in the mediaeval Islamic series.

Something like these coins of Saladin. I don't know if there's enough detail surviving to actually narrow down a time period and ruler.

Umayyad, c. 8th century, AE fals, no mint or date but Syrian type. The obverse (star side) has the Kalima: "There is no god but Allah alone; there are no others with Him". The reverse is a version of Surah 112 from the Qur'an: "Allah is One; Allah is the Eternal; He begets not, nor is He begotten."
