First coin is 1 dollar Yuan Shih Kai 1914 from Gansu province.

More information about it you can find here:
http://china-mint.info/forum/index.php?topic=4460.0
picture 3.
Gansu (Kansu) variety of YSK 1914. According to: http://home.netvigator.com/~ykleungn/yuansk3.htm
This coin was issued in 1921 or later and it was circulated at a discount in the Republic period,cause it has low silver content (about 60-70% content of silver). I also found some other information that it was issued in 1930's. It is hard to say when exactly. But this one is rarer than common YSK 1914
dollar on picture 2 for sure. It has double eyebrow, bigger head, different shape of chinese characters on the obverse when you will compare them to the one on picture 2. The shape of that part with stars is also different. One the reverse 2 chinese character "yi yuan" are also in a different shape. Leaves are little more clear than on common fatman 1914 from the picture nr 2.

Now, the second coin is 1 dollar Yuan Shih Kai 1921.
If you wanna know more please review:

7) This is the most common type of YSK 1921.

Please let us know the weight of each of those 2 coins if you can.
