Do these look like two Hendon 1360 prutah to you?

Yep.

First clue is the lack of a lid on the amphora.  Year three prutot have a lid.

I see this coin described as "Masada Coin".  Do you know why?

I am unaware of any direct ties between the coins and Masada itself, other than the strong ties between the Jewish resistance and mass suicide at Masada as opposed to giving the Romans a "victory" there.

If you've never been there, it's an almost surreal feeling as you walk around.  When we were there a few years ago, our guide, Ronen, was former Israeli army (as almost every man and woman is) and as he told us about what took place there, even his voice seemed to crack a little.  Add to that the two Israeli F-16s that streaked overhead at just that moment, and it really sinks in.

It's probably a marketing gimick.
I visit Masada in 2000 and now wish I had 1) spent much more time exploring and 2) had hiked up the mountain.  Next time!

"These coins are called Masada coins because it was there that a large hoard of this type of coins was found during archaeological excavation."  [LINK TO COMMERCIAL SITE REMOVED BY ADMIN]
Weak reason.  Marketing.
