    Usually I can identify a coin, given some time. But these two have stumped me. My right eye keeps spinning, and my left leg is twitching, and its late (a little humor there). Really though does anybody recognize these, one has Arabic writing, the other some form of Hindi. The Hindi one is the size of a half dollar, and the brass Arabic one is the size of a quarter. Heres the pics: (4 total) DSCN4799.JPG DSCN4795.JPG DSCN4789.JPG DSCN4788.JPG Thank you, in advance.

    Top piece is Thai. Appears to have a depiction of Lord Hanuman (a monkey faced god) devotee of Rama on one side, with the Thai King facing left on the other. Compare to an example here.

    Bottom is Algerian 50 Centimes, KM#102

    2nd coin is 50 Algerian centimes. Outer text reads The People's Democratic Republic of Algeria. The inner reads 50 centimes below the '50'.
