Welcome to our forum Overlord.
For the sake of eliminating confusion, I divided your post into two parts, one for each coin.  Perhaps I should have gotten permission from you first. I apologize.  One side of one coin was upside down and I reversed it.

I have a coin from Atjeh, also inscribed Dar-es-salaam. Is this a general honorific, to be used at will, or does it mean anything specifically? Bandar Atjeh doesn't strike me as a particularly peaceful place. On the contrary...

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

If I'm correct "Dar-al-salaam" was the old name for Baghdad.

Dogaon refers to a village near Bahraich, in the Province of Oudh. Probably, the only known issues are copper coins of Akbar and Shah Jahan. The earliest issues are dated around AH 974, and bear the epithet Dar-i-khilafat, which was changed to Daru-s-salam  around AH 988.

Hello Friends,
The literal meaning of Dal -Al - Salam or Dar-Us- Salam is City/Town/Center  of "Peace". While Dar- Ul - Saltanate means Capital of Kingdom.Dar -Ul -Khilafat means Town/Center/City of Leadership/Rule(in Religious Matters(Islamic)).
