This is my piece, same as your coin #2. I used transcription of Mitchiner, and it is not very good match to the coin as he drew it. I cannot reproduce, have to draw again. Some letters clearly use the honorific form. Others are shorthand, do not have final consonant marker, do not have correct vowel. So I draw a little different. It is supposed to say "Sri Pangeran Siyak". But really says "Sri Panagaran Saye(?)". Maybe oval mark was pushed from over Si to Ya, in which case it does read Siya-. Letter K is a mess, but does look like the way it is written on other Siak pitis. Old-new Javanese is so mixed up with various ways to write, I am trusting Mitchiner used process of elimination to be sure "Siyak" isn't really "Banten"..... or Jambi, Kedah, etc. They all had pangerans.
