    AS a guess I say the smaller one is a commemorative coin for the Aswan dam in Egypt....Pete.

    not really they are quiet big and coins look always a bit different, i was thinking it can be some airforce or something as the bird on the one thing

    They dont look like medals so i would go with coins as well, worth as much as the silver content provided its good silver

    Before melting down why not try and find the history behind them, they were minted for a reason, whether it be for money or commemoration, they will have a past

    All I can find out so far is that the larger one, the numbers are 1948-1367 (Islamic year), and the smaller 1947-1366. I though that would help narrow it down but no luck so far. I think it rules out being the Asawn dam though.
    I certainly wouldn't melt them down until you find out what they are, I'll see if i can find somebody at work Monday that can read Arabic.
