I'm a coin collector specialized in Wallachian and Moldavian medieval coins. By chance I've seen your post and I can id your coins. They seem like 17th century Moldavian imitations of Swedish schillings. Original coins are in silver, the imitations are silvered copper/bronze.
The last coin imitates a schilling of Christina (1622-1654), struck at Riga mint. On obv. there is a crowned C with Vasa crest inside. Typical legend CHRISTINA.D.G.R.S/SOLIDVS.CIVI RIG 16 (on your coin there is a 9 visible at the end of the legend). MBR p.94 no 845a var.
