Hi everyone, a buddy bad these coins given to him and I was trying to help with a date. One on the left looks like 1715 to me but the crest on the right looks different, could just be the wear? Any help would be appreciated!

I can't see where it says 1715 but the one on the right has an 8. Probably 8 Reales

They look good to me... i would say from 1715 fleet... the coins from that are mostly Mexico but some were Lima and Potosi as well... and from years 1711-1715... BUT.... some dates extended back into the 1600s.
