Hampi  is located within the ruins of Vijayanagara, the former capital of the Vijayanagara Empire. I guess these coins will be from Vijaynagar empire. Images are bit small to identify the coins. You can compare your coins with pictures given on http://coinindia.com/galleries-vijayanagar.html  (2 pages)

Hello karthick

I am not sure of these coins. 2nd one ( partially broken0 seems to be  Elephant. And this symbol you will find usually on Mysore coins.
