Not sure what your question is. The coins you post are Kushan and date from the second century. They are likely to be in the name of Kanishka or Huvishka, but I can't see enough of the legend to be sure. They feature two reverse types. The Sakyamuni Buddha (legend: CAKA MANO BOΔΔO) is standing, facing, feet together, hands in prayer. The Maitreya Buddha (legend: BOΔΔO) is crosslegged, facing, on a platform, meditating. They also come with the Bactrian legend BOYΔO, such as the coins in reply #2.

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