Any help in identifying what the denomination or what the symbols may translate to would be greatly appreciated on either piece.  Thank you.

The first one is a medal from Taiwan, the second one is from Japan.

Thank you for the reply.  Can anyone read which year is on the second coin?  Is it year 35?  And is anyone familiar with coin number 1 (possibly a Taiwan gold medal?)?

The 0.5 oz. gold medal was minted by Central Mint of Taiwan (Official Mint of ROC, Taiwan) dated 1994 and commissioned by a company named 理褔.
 
The second gold coin is from Japan, dated 1902. The purity is 0.900 (.10 copper) and weighs 8.33 gm. The mintage is 3,023,940, the second highest of this 10 Yen series (1887-1910).
