    Actually, it looks like both of these are silver rounds (silver medallions, if you like). They're highly pure silver bullion (note the inscription ".999 FINE SILVER" on the back side of each). Like many rounds, these have designs adapted from actual coins--a Morgan silver dollar design for the top one, and a Seated Liberty design for the bottom. (The Seated Liberty motif appeared on the dime, quarter, half dollar, and silver dollar.)

    Even though these rounds draw inspiration from the designs of real U.S. coins, and LOOK a whole lot like coins, they are not legal tender. However, if genuine, they are 99.9% pure silver and would fall under the category of "exonumia," or money-like objects.

    As far as where these silver rounds were made, or when, or how many exist, I can't say. These details can often be difficult to find when dealing with exonumia. They're typically worth the melt value of their silver content. Hope that helps!

    Lil_Lincoln is correct. They are rounds. Silver too. Nice finds

    one thing i know for sure is that they are not medallions because they have face values and their pefect round nature says they are modern coins.
