The full inscription on these coins (or technically, tokens) should read 'WÜRTT. OBERAMTSSTADT' around the hand with the cross in its palm, and HALL at the bottom. The other side reads 'KLEINGELD' at the top and 'ERSATZMARKE' at the bottom, with the date to the left and right of the numeral, and the denomination of pfennig abbreviated to 'PF.' just below.

Struck in a number of different denominations, and matching sizes, these modern Russian 1, 2 and 5 all look alike. Except, of course, for the large numeral on one side. The flower also changes subtly in style. The coins are struck in nickel-plated steel.
This page applies only to coins that look like our picture, with the large double-headed eagle on one side. Russia struck many other types of these coins to commemorate different events. These commemoratives are not included here.
The coin in our picture comes from Westfalische Auktions gesellschaft in Arnsberg, Germany where it sold for 55 euros (about $75 US dollars) in a 2014 auction. This gives a good idea about how much these coins are worth.
These are one-twelfth thalers from the old German State of Hannover. Wilhelm IV ruled there between 1830 and 1837. Catalog values for these coins run like this:
worn: $10 US dollars approximate catalog value
Other Prussian thalers show only King Wilhelm I, but this one shows Queen Augusta as well. There were 1000000 coins minted and many were saved in celebration of the king and queen coronation. This means there are plenty for today's collectors, and that keeps the price low, as follows:
worn: $20 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $25
well preserved: $50
fully uncirculated: $100
The coin contains 0.536 troy ounces silver, so it can never be worth less than silver value.
These 'new sheqel' coins have been produced in Israel since 1986. They come in copper-nickel composition and in nickel-clad steel. As modern coins made of non-precious metal, they are worth very little. Collectors pay $1 or $2 US dollars to add uncirculated specimens to their collections.
Tunisia has minted 1, 2, and 5 millim coins with a large oak tree on the front and wreathed denomination on the back since 1960. The coins are made of aluminum. As modern coins made of non-precious metal, they are not worth very much: less than $1 US dollar. If you can find an uncirculated specimen with plenty of eye appeal, a collector will probably pay $1 to $2 to add it to his or her collection.
That bearded guy with the wavy hairdo is none other than Aristotle, Matty. His name is written on the coin as ARISTOTELES in the Greek alphabet.
Being modern coins struck in the 10s of millions, values are low. Circulated specimens rarely reach one US dollar in value, while beautiful, fully uncirculated coins may sell for $2 to $3.
In 1978, these coins were only struck for collectors - not for circulation. If you have a coin dated 1978 that is still encapsulated in the original mint plastic, then figure a catalog value of $10.
Of course there are oodles of different commemorative coins, medals, medallions, tokens, and keepsakes made for the Olympic games. More than likely, Stavi, you have one that looks like this. It is from the 1972 Munich games. Each medal has a common reverse showing the Canadian maple leaf and the interlocked Olympic rings. Different sports are depicted on the obverse side, with stylized athletes in a field of 1972 MUNICH OLYMPIAD XX.
These are often seen singly and sometimes in holders. A complete set of 21 medals sells for about $20 US dollars. A single medal, if in great shape, might garner $2 to $5 from an enthused athlete.
