To give you just a hint and not directly the final answer: Search within the Tughluq Dynasty of Delhi Sultans.

Dear Desibot, reading the coin from top to bottom:
First photo:
السلطان al-Sultan
السعيد الشهيد al-Sa’id al-Shaheed
تغلق شاه Tughluq Shah
سنة ثمان Sanah thaman
وعشرين وسبعمايه wa ishreen wa sabu’mia
Text read: al-Sultan al-Sa’id al-Shaheed Tughluq Shah sanah thaman wa ishreen wa sabu’mia, meaning, The happy, the martyr, Taqluq Shah, year 728.
Second photo:
ضرب Zarb
في زمن العبد fi zaman al-‘Abd
الراجي رحمة al-Raji Rahmat
الله محمد Allah Muhammad
بن bin
Text reads: Zarb fi zaman al-‘Abd al-Raji Rahmat Allah Muhammad bin, meaning, Struck during the time of the servant al-Raji may God have mercy on him, Muhammed bin.
I hope that helps.

Coin collecting has a curious name. It is also called the "Hobby of Kings".
