I won't say any more than that.
These are not coins. Since there's no value and you can't spend them.
It was mentioned before that Shell Oil put out some collectible Presidential "tokens".
If this isn't that, it's the same sort of thing. As for value, you probably need a whole set and then you can look up auction sold prices on EBay or wherever.
If these were made out of gold (I don't think so but who knows) then of course they are very valuable.
The Shell coins are an 8 coin set from 1992.
I am sure yours are older than that.
There's a Franklin Mint set from 1968 in bronze, that could be it,
if you think your coins are from 1968.
36 coin set, they also made them in sterling silver.
From Washington to LBJ might be 36, now I have to use Google.
Lyndon Baines Johnson (August 27, 1908 – January 22, 1973), often referred to as LBJ, was an American politician who served as the 36th president of the United States from 1963 to 1969.

If I were you, I'd flatten the points of the staples before they cause more damage. Better yet, why don't you take them out of the 2x2's and put them in Saflips.
FWIW, the US Mint sells Presidential bronze medals in two different sizes: 1-5/8" and 3".
AirTites really aren't airtight. A lot will depend on the temperature and humidity in your home. AirTites can get pretty expensive if you have a lot of coins & medals, and sometimes you can't find them in an exact fit which will allow the coin or medal to slide around inside. Personally, I think it would be better to put them in 2x2 Saflips. You can order them in packs of 50 that come with inserts for notating information and a storage box.
Here is the link to JP's Corner. Scroll down to Saflips. They are archival quality and PVC-free.
Correction: Packs of 100 are available with inserts and storage box.
