However I notice that other ones online have more info(mint, more specific date range than just ruler). Thus I would really appreciate any input in regards to this. If you have an idea of value as well please share. Thanks in advance!

    First one as you say is James 1st Shilling, Second Coinage, mintmark Coronet dating it to 1607-09. I believe it is S2655 in the Spink book as the hair is shorter than the S2656. Book price is £70 in Fine - yours is less than that.

    Second coin is Edward I Penny - I believe S1385, Class 2a but I find these very difficult to distinguish! London mint. Book price in Fine is £20 - yours is better than that in some places, but worse in others, so it would depend what view any buyer took on it.
