Yea, where did you get those? Unfortunately, there's so many fake US coins floating around the Philippines. If you didn't personally find them then I'd be wary as to them being genuine or not.

I consulted it already with a fellow TH near our place. He said that it has a value. Yes I am selling it and I am willing to do meet ups for you to see to confirm whether it is real or fake.. not just 3 pcs but a lot.

Photographs you posted are actually quite good, but I can not say the same for the coins.  Now if they are really Japanese war captured treasure, that may be true and may be not.  But I really doubt they were Official USA coins.  Now that said, since each of the Dollar coins was representing one Dollar in Asia before the war, if taken for One Dollar that was quite a bit of money in the 1920's, in particular China and it's contiguous areas.  Because of that there was considerable counterfeiting going on, not only by Asians but also Europeans doing business in Asia.  Brass coins were made up, counterfeits, and then silver plated to look authentic.  Chinese and such were not familiar with USA currency and if it look good to them, they accepted them in trade for payment.  Locals also made up fake money and passed it around.  Along came the Japanese and looted most of Asia and in doing so sucked up the fake money.  To the low level Japanese soldiers, it looked good to them and they knew they could also use it for exchange.  So it is not uncommon to find fake money in Japanese treasure deposits.  For example a real 1921 USA Silver Dollar is 90% silver, 10% copper.  The coins total weight is 26.73 grams.  Melt down the 1921 Morgan Dollar coin and have it assayed, then let us know what the assay is.  Silver percentage and total original weight of the coin.

the price would really depend on real experts since they have class 1, 2 and 3 of these coins plus those counterfeit that circulated in other countries. photo attach compared to your find of 1804 coins
