The one on the left looks like an AE4 of the house of Constantine or successors with Victory facing left. The one on the right looks like a clipped silver siliqua of rughly the same period! ::g

I think the siliqua is a later coin, House of Theodosius 388-402:

Reverse: [VRTVS ROMANORVM]

Obverse []PF AVG

(can't see which emporer but possible Arcadius - has that look)

These become more common fro the 360s onwards so less likely to be Constantinian.
