Second is Burma 5-PYAS (KM33) Chinthe. This scalloped coin was issued from CS1314 to CS1328 (1952-1966).

Chinthes -- mythological half-lion half-dragon creatures -- are all over Burma (now Myanmar), especially as the undefeatable guardians of Buddhist temples.

First one here looks to be this http://www.the-saleroom.com/en-us/auction-catalogues/baldwins/catalogue-id-srbal10026/lot-9986bd7a-6403-4067-a5f4-a5090119e408 Art Medals, India, Silver Medal of Good Fortune, the Goddess Lakshmi standing on lotus flower, dropping coins into the water, swan to left and elephant right, rev decorative motifs, SHH below, 51mm, 50.49g

 

 

From your picture it is not possible to be sure, but you can check weight and having the medal in hand should be easy for you to decide.

 

If not it is something very similar.

There are many "temple coins" in silver that people buy for the express purpose of using as an offering at a temple.

Reportedly, some temples in India have built up massive hoards of precious metals.
